Hey everyone,
Just got another 20 gallon tank and I can't decide on what to do with it,
I'm thinking either another community tank with guppies platys ect.
A small salt water aquarium ?
Or maybe even a heavily planted tank for a Betta ?
What would you guys do ?

I personally wouldn't try saltwater in anything less than a 29, simply because sw fish are generally so sensitive.

Betta would love that I wasn't referring to have a coral tank with fish in a 20 gallon; I was saying have a minI coral tank with nothing but coral.

Would Betta be ok without a substrate ? I was just thinking have a bare bottom but with some large round smooth rocks on the bottom

I've kept a Betta like that before. One night I woke up to the sound of something tapping on glass. I look up and I see my betta pushing around the river stones and burying underneath them to get some food. Took them out because I was worried he would get stuck. It was so cute though. That would be only concern about that.

I just decided I would save the 20 gallon for something else and I used an old 8g tank for him
