20g New tank

Hey everyone, great forum thanks for all your help,
I just upgraded from a 10 g to this new 20 g tank...

any thoughts? more objects? plants? more fish?

I have 1 rainbow shark, 4 tiger barbs and 2 giant danios and 4 live plants.

If you were to add any more fish, it would be either Danios or Barbs. Nothing else. The Rainbow will get 6-8" long and get very territorial. You may have to rehome him eventaully. Tiger Barbs like groups of 6+, and the danions should have at least 5 others in their group with 36" of swiming space for best results.

I think it looks great. :) I like the contrast between the plants and the gravel.

Fancying the fish world!

Oh... and a suggestion. I would add more plants to the back wall, and add some more caves/hiding spots.

Good start! Try adding a plain black or blue background to cover up the wires and such.

150 Gallon - Mostly American Cichlids
135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
75 Gallon - Odd couple (Polleni/Angelfish)
55 Gallon - African tank
20 Gallon Long - QT
10 Gallon - Empty
