I have some with neon tetras, ghost shrimp, and angels. But with your twenty I wouldn't suggest that! Maybe a betta. You can get any small tropical community. Ive had this gbr tank for two weeks. Ive already had them lay eggs!

Theyre compatible with most small community fish. Don't put them with other cichlids. They may nibble on shrimp so that's something to be cautious of. Don't place with other dwarf cichlids unless you have a slightly bigger tank please research which schooling fish are compatible since some may nip

Most tetras should be fine. My new favorites are bloodfins. Otherwise I have them with bloodfins,neons,glowlights,Colombians,rainbows. I've heard Killies are good tank mates. I want to try them out.

I would not put an angel in a 20long. There is not enough height for it to completely grow. If you want the pair of gbr. I would get like 5 cories and maybe some neon tetras.

GBRs have done well with a small school of neon tetras or harlequin rasboras (in my experience).
