I just let it sit there a few days. Most water districts add chlorine to the water to kill bacteria. Well, in your aquarium you WANT bacteria: the good kind, anyway. That's why you use a water...

They're not huge on cleaning algae from your glass or decorations (unless you're starving them). They're debris eaters that will eat flakes of food that sink to the bottom from the fish above. But...

Since you're new (like me) look for beginner's fish, those are guppies, Endler's live bearers, bettas (maybe not in a 20...), cory catfish, gourami... there are tons of options! What colors are you...

Okay. Final consensus:
