20gal Long Mafia

This 20g is the fallout tank from a SA 40g I have set up at my brothers house.
Back in April I purchased 6 Apisto huascar at the Seattle auction. They've all been coexisting in the 40g until yesterday when I split them up, 3 in each tank. Ideally, the plan was to have a male and 2 females in each, but I could use some help sexing them. The 3 in the 20g seem to hate each other equally.
The 20 needs a schooling fish now... Recommendations?
I'll get pics of the 3 in the 40g this weekend.

I'd say something mid to top-level that would stay out of the huascars' way. Hatchetfish, maybe?

Hatchets get a little bigger than I was looking for. I'd like to go small as possible with more numbers, 8+ fish. I will be at the Wetspot fish store soon. Their fish stock list is extensive with a great selection.
I like the Emperor tetra, but I think they might be too big.

Emperors are so pretty. I have only seen pics. Hope to one day see them and take them home with me.

I'd look into Boraras brigittae.




Danio margaritatus.

They do get too big to have in a decent school in that tank, I think. But... ember or ruby tetras would look quite nice. My only question would be about compatibility with your apistos.

And do report back on your impressions of The Wet Spot. I've often considered mail-ordering from them.

Nice selections Hukit, I want both haha!
Last September I put 18 Embers in my 40, and only had 2 jumpers, maybe 3. They are a hearty little tetra for sure. The apistos don't pay them much attention. The jumpers happened before the apistos were in the 40g.
I'd recommend the wetspots stock and variety. The staff is on point too. I haven't done their shipping before.

You are correct sir. All i can do is put in my years of dedicated tank vigilance.
Hopefully someday I'll get jumped in.
