With all the space taken up by the diy rock/ land formation probably only around 20 gallons.

Native darters or minnows, rummynose or cardinal tetras, a pair of rams with the tetras. It would look pretty awesome, and maybe some cories.

Thanks. Any other small cats other than cory's that could work? Even maybe not for life?

I'm not good with catfish, otos and BN plecos, maybe a bulldog Pleco would work.

The OP would have to completely redo to paludarium to increase the volume and that does not look like an option.

Thanks all. I currently have a couple Raphael cats in another tank so not interested in them. Not sure I like the banjo cats. Spent some time researching and I'm leaning toward a group of synodontis petricola(neat little cats that I've kept before but not in many years). Any type of cichlid that would work for awhile? P.S. I do have several other tanks where I could relocate fish if they out grew the habitat (10g-800g indoor pond).
