    Hey everyone,
    Just got another 20g 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 ?

    If i could, I would do a small coral tank, no fish :3

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

    Oh ok that's cool :) I think I will just set it up really nicely for a nice Betta :) maybe put a divider into it and have 2 !

    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 20g for something else and I used an old 8g tank for him :)
    Will be getting a lot !! More plants with the next pay check :)
