    what's some good ideas for this tank? I have to wait till its done cycling. But i need ideas :p
    i know i wanna do scarlet badis. Probably about 6. would I be able to put a Bolivian ram or two? Or what are some other nice dwarf cichlids?
    would any kind of livebearers (mollies, platys, swordtails etc) be safe with dwarf cichlids? its gonna be a heavy planted tank.

    Do a African shell dweller tank if you can start afresh. Mine are fantastic to watch. Similis or Multis. Or even partial shell dwelling like Neolamprologous caudopunctus.

    You can keep a small colony. They are expensive though.

    yeah.. Expensive is right! Is 20 gallons enough tho for shell dwellers?? They are quite a fascinating fish.
    I'd like to stick with scarlett badis or dwarf American cichlids.
