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..

well if you're looking for activity a school of tetras might be the way to go

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.
