Wdyd with a 20 long

If you had a free 20 long what would you do with it? Fresh? Planted? Reef? Community?

Put fish in it.

SW takes much more consideration (and money, and research) and you still don't get to have only a few fish. But cool!!!

Otherwise FW for sure. Start learning about nano fish. Have more little fish in a small space compared to commonly found /sold fish. Check out msjinkzd.com "Invertebrates by Msjinkzd - Specializing in invertebrates and micro fish from around the world." She has pics, (also sells), is a co-author of a book about nano fish and is a knowledgeable and kind person to work with.

What do you like?

I'm really finding that I enjoy my community tank a little more now that I have smaller fish in general in it. I love how my neons are brightly colored and shimmer blue. My dwarf blue gourami is a showpiece along with my betta, Patriot. If I had a long tank I think it would be a little nicer, because even with the extra gallons I think longer would be better. Rummy noses, or even glass catfish would be cool in something like that.

I've been attempting a low light planted FW but it's been tough. Not wanting to get into CO2 and finding the right light, most of the plants have not done well and caused problems

I have a 15 nano reef and a 75 planted South American cichlid. I'm wanting to do something with it and have no clue what to do.

Then I would suggest a community tank. Anything you've liked that you can't put in either of your other tanks... the dither fish, the little ones, or the shy ones who are scared of everything including their shadow.

You could do a pretty cool shrimp tank, too. 20 gallons would support a massive colony!

I would personally go for a heavily planted tank with some cool driftwood. Neon tetras for a school, a DG as a centerpiece and if there were space a pair of bolivian rams. Or a breeding tank for bolivian rams. I really like bolivian rams...
