Something COOL!

So I got my 20gallon tank and transfered my fish over from my 10 gallon tank. The fish are mostly guppies, swordtails, some Otos, and some ghost shrimp.

So my big question is do you guys have any ideas of what I can do to make my tank really cool.

I want to get an eel or Birchir but then won't they eat my fish?

I just want to get another fish of some sort that is just really interesting to look at.

I guess all in all I feel like my tank ia really boring looking. I want to make it look like a piece of art like I see all these other guys doing.

I saw one tank that had java moss on the bottom but then I'm thinking geese wouldn't that be very hard to clean.

So you guys got an suggestions?

Live plants and plenty of active small fish? Some corydoras and rummy-nose tetras will do the job. I'd eliminate the swordtails for the tetras though. They're far too big for a 20 gallons and need plenty of space.

Pangios will be your best bet. These loaches however will not appreciate substrate with sharp edges. As for bichirs, they will not fit the 20g on permanent basis. 4-5 inches will fit temporarily but they will eventually ambush their fellow tankmates.

A tank with plenty of java moss will make a suitable breeding ground for various danios and galaxy rasboras.

i think you might enjoy perhaps a mystery snail and 4 more of whatever corydoras catfish you have. between my snail and the 6 trilineaus corys I have in my 29gal they are so active and entertaining :)

just a note though, if you decide to get more cories they should be the same as the one you have. my 2 peppered cories hang out and get along just fine with my trilineaus but some people have told me that 2 different cories wont necessarily hang out together, thus not doing anything about the stress level of the lonely guy :)
