20g stock: rainbowfish species?

I have no experience with rainbows, but I have an unstocked 20g right now and I am considering them.

Are there any species of rainbowfish that are suitable in this tank? I heard that some smaller ones like spotted blue eyes are "annuals," so does that mean I should expect them to die in a year or less? They are pricey for me, so if they are not prolific in a species-only tank I will pass them up. I'm too used to lazy livebearer tanks that replace themselves with minimal effort

Maybe sparkling gouramis are in my future...

Thank you!

Furcata, Gertude or Threadfin rainbows is all that could fit in a twenty gallon IMO.
