I have a 20G that my brother gave me. I moved some of his fish around in my tanks and what not. Right now I have 2 giant danios with 3 red wag Platy. 1 of the 3 platys are adults 2 are fry. What else can I add?? I'm leaning it to be a planted tank. Also has ivory snail in it with moneywort. For lighting I have T8 lighting.

I would rehome the Giant Danios. They should be in a larger group and may be aggressive in such a small space. http://www.seriouslyfish.com/profile...innatus&id=212

Then you'll have more leeway to add peaceful fish.

Ok well I can probably rehome them. My brother had one of them for 6 years and we didn't know better. I thought they only needed 10G tank and didn't grow that big! The oldest one is pretty big 4 inches. German blue rams would looks nice so do gouramis and school of rasboras.

G Danios are very hardy fish but will appreciate more room and friends.
