Aggressive 20

What'd be the most aggressive fish I can put into a 20?

So if I got 10 TB'S, could I have a few cories? Also, if I put, pers'e, some little white cloud minnows in a tank with a bunch of TB's,.would the tiny feeders get eaten?

They might be bullied, you could also go with a leaf fish. They get 4 inches very shy and will hunt anything in the tank. the ones sold at petco I have heard of cories and plecos even being bullied

Dwarf puffers are freshwater. A Fish from the micrctenopoma genus would look great in a species tank

I'm leaning toward TB's or a Puffer.

If you go with dwarf puffers, I would get 1 male and 3 females. Species only.

Some puffers will only eat live food, but you can usually train them to take frozen.
