    Default show fish for a 20 gallon

    0 Not allowed!
    I am currently cycling a 20 gallon tank with 6 pink zebra danios. Once it is finished cycling I am looking to add one fish to kind of be the show fish and maybe 2 more danios. What would be a good colorful/interesting looking fish to complete my tank?

    Well I originally thought of an angel fish but read that it would get too big and possibly have issues with the danios when it got older. Now I'm thinking of maybe an electric blue ram but i'm not sure. I really like colorful fish or fish with interesting body shapes.

    Blue rams will need a really high temperature and your danios likely will not appreciate that. Try Bolivian rams instead. Beyond that you have the other dwarf cichlids(beware, sensitive fish) or smaller species of gourami.

    Why not a fishless?

    With a 20 gallon your options are rather limited to some dwarf cichlids. Apistogramma are another option. Both with rams and apistos you'd want a decent amount of planting though otherwise they may well claim the whole tank as territory

    I'm cycling with the pink zebra danios because my state has banned all the other colors of glofish and are trying to ban the pink ones so this was the last batch of pink danios my lfs was going to get until they know if they will officially be banned or not.

    What I was curious about is why you decided to cycle with fish. Never mind.

    I though all species of glofish were banned in California? must have misunderstood what I read then.

    I'm pretty sure they still are.

    You could do a pair of Apistos, a pair of Rams, a Dwarf Gourami, a Betta... etc.
