Inverts for a planted Blackwater Nannacara cichlid tank?
I was wondering if anyone had suggestions for what I could put in my 20 gallon planted blackwater aquarium. Currently I only have one species of Nannacara, but since I gave away most of the juvinilles after their parents bred, I have plenty of extra space.
Thus, I was wondering if any inverts, especially shrimp, would be okay in this tank.
Thanks for the prompt responses!

Blackwater you could try cherry shrimp I suppose but even they might struggle with the low mineral content in soft and acidic water. In any case there's a good risk that the nannacara would hunt them down.
How about a pic of the tank? Perhaps it's pencilfish friendly.
