Heni's are a different story. I have 2 and they are a joy! Lots of personality, friendly (mine hand feed) and very hearty once acclimated (qt for this fish a must).
I definately suggest at least a pair and you need a system of at least 125 gal IMO as they are very active swimmer and get to about 6" as adults.

Yeah, looks like neither fish would do for you in a 20g tank.

Back to the drawing board, huh? 8)

Why do lfs's even sell this fish? It is irresponsible collection like this that makes governments want to shut down or drastically reduce our hobby. I see some at big als sometimes. Next time I see one there I'm going to express my displeasure.
