20 Gallon Tank Stocking ideas

Jaden

Heyy everyone, so i have a 20g tank fully planted everything natural with black sand is looking good so far. But if y’all have any ideas for stocking it let me know. I only have a dragon scale betta right now and I know bettas aren’t the friendliest but I will be putting a Bolivian ram in there with him though. I think just one won’t be a problem they are territorial when they have a female mate but one alone shouldn’t be a issue I think .I’ve had gouramis with a betta before too, but I’m open to suggestions I wanna hear what you guys have in mind maybe a group of 6 neon tetras would be good too, I was hoping to put a gourami aswell If things go as planned with the Bolivian ram I will be ordering soon. My plan was to successfully have a community tank with a betta, a Bolivian ram and a gourami and some neons and some other attractive fishes ,if you guys have any tips and stocking ideas or thoughts let me know please :)

Not sure how a ram will go but I’d really not advise putting a gourami with a bettas since they are in the same family. What about this
1x betta
10-12x ember tetras OR chili rasboras
1x ram
2x mystery snails

Neon tetras will look awesome in that tank!
u can put at least 12-14 neon's
I would also keep some zebra loach
In my locality its bit rare
Rams are cool too!

I personally would not risk a ram, And definitely would not add a gourami to a betta tank, they are both territorial top-dwelling anabantoid fish that dont play well with others.

how about a large school of glowlight tetra, black neons, or fire green neons.

yeah I feel what your saying I’m only doing it because I seen others do it and also is a great fish the ram and it’s a fish that spends its time in the bottom as well and is not the most aggressive and yeah gouramis are more risky maybe later on when the whole tank and fish are set I can try the gourami , I can separate the gourami if I see aggression, but your suggestion sounds awesome I’ll check out the glow neons and the fire green neons!thxx

I’ll try the ram I think they will get along just fine and the gourami I might add it later on when everything Is set and if I see a problem I can just take it out fast and I love the amber tetras idea and mystery nails would def help with the algae thx !!

awesome that you agree with me in the neons idea! And a loach and maybe a Cory dory would look great thxx!!
