20 gallon predator fish?

Hi i am looking for a predator fish but the thing is I only have a 20 gallon tank. I would like something that eats feeder fish as well.(Also not puffers)Thank you so much for your time.

Not much room in a 20g. I guess it depends on what you call predator fish. You could get by with a pair of convicts, but barely. A single senegal bichir would probably be ok. They eat small fish when they get large enough.

20 gallon predator fish?

I'm just going to throw it out there but is there anything like a small leaf fish species you could get? Never kept them though so not sure how possible it would be?

If this is a silly idea can someone post as been toying with the idea myself.

From what I know of leaf fish (which is basically nothing), smaller species would be ok in a 20g. Not sure how predatory they are though. I was told at a LFS that they require very soft, acidic water. I was thinking about a couple myself, as they're super cool, but my water is way too hard and base.

I see them at the lfs every so often. Our water is fairly soft so might be ok. That's handy info.
