hello.
can someone tell me what to stock in a cycled 20 gallon which has no fish other than a BN pleco. Also I plan on keeping a single fish which is interactive to its owner. (pls do not give names of schooling or small fish). medium sized fish are fine

Not sure if it's interactive, but it is definitely awesome. Bristlenose plecos stay smaller than common plecos, around 4-5 inches.

Is this a 20 gallon long or high?

Rams, apistos, african butterfly cichlids, and dwarf acaras (laetacara spp.) Would all be good candidates. I've found bolivian rams and african butterfly cichlids to be especially interactive.

I've fed my DG from my finger... he likes to investigate things (slowly investigate), and knows when it's food time, and will run away from my camera. Pretty entertaining.

ETA that's him in my avatar, he photobombed first and then ran away

the tank is about 2 feet long do you think that's fine for a bolivian ram or any other small cichlid?

Yes, that should be fine, however I wouldn't get any cichlid larger than a bolivian ram.
