What would you do with a 20 gallon?

Imagine a 20 gallon, fully cycled tank with "the works" appeared from nowhere. What would you do with it?

Rams and tetras! Or a shrimp tank with tons of shrimp and micro fish heavily planted!

I'd breed enough fish in it to pay for a larger tank set up

Now that's my kinda attitude

That's the actual reason for the shellies and danios (all easy to breed as I'm sure you know )

Hello sini...

I had a similar situation. I got 8 Rosey Danios and a couple of female Guppy fry and put them all in the tank with some Anubias, moss, Hornwort and Common water weed.

Attached is a pic of the tank.

I would make it a native tank with various meramec darters, a couple baby bluegills and sunfish, a madtom and some minnows with a couple native plants and a sand/rock bottom.
