Cold Water Tank Mates For Paradise Fish

    I currently have two female paradise fish in my 20G unheated tank. As they're both female they don't seem to fight too much, they do chase each other occasionally but mostly they keep to themselves. I am wondering if there is anything I could add to the tank?

    It's semi-planted (I'm slowly replacing my fake plants with real ones as I get more confident) with not too much of a current to keep the Paradise fish happy but I do have an oxygen pump even though the Paradise fish don't necessarily require it. I'd ideally like to add two or three smaller fish, but not too small that they might get bullied by the Paradise's. Any recommendations? Or is it best to keep them alone? They're around 2 inches at the moment.

    maybe a couple platies? its always best to get a heater for your aquarium, though.

    What temperature is the tank at?

    If this is a 20 gallon long you could add a school of panda or peppered cories

    Is it a 20 long or high? I would just stick with bottom dwellers with paradise fish in a smaller tank like this.
