Ideas for blackwater ACTIVE fish?

Juist wondering... my ideas so far are:
Cherry barbs, upside-down catfish, and cories.. Any more ideas?

My girlfiend thinks she wants aggressive fish, but I'm confident she really just wants activity..
I'm not too inclined to set up a african lake tank, so I'm trying to think of active small species...
At minimum, they will go in a 20G, but probably larger soon..

Not sure of any blackwater active fish. Blackwater is usually stagnent or has very minimal flow. This means that the fish that live in this type of water are going to be very sedate fish that swim slowly and appear lazy. I am interested to hear if anyone else has any ideas on some active blackwater fish.

Advice for anyone new to the hobby: Do your research!! Before you do anything to your aquarium, take some time to research it. It has made a huge difference for me

S.A. Flooded Jungle (20 gallon)
A heavily planted tank. Inhabitants include: 7 Lemon Tetra, 1 Whiptail Catfish, and MTS.
