If you go with tiger barbs do 8-12. They NEED to be in big groups or they will attack and nip at your pleco. I would say upgrade so you can add more tiger barbs unless you don't want to. Actually I take that back, if you want a pleco in there you can't have tiger barbs because of how many tiger barbs you need to keep the peace. What other fish would you want? Rosies are smaller so you can do around 6-10 and maybe get away with a pleco. If you want to do that get a 30 or 40 gallon filter.

How about...a male OR female beta, 6-8 albino cories, and 5 endlers? Or if you want regular guppies get 2-3 males. Mollies are huge waste producers, which your tank can't hold.

Sounds perfect. Either the female OR male add to the 20 gallon along with the bristle nose and guppies. Which betta is calm? If your gonna add a male you should get white females. Don't want the betta flaring at the guppies all the time.

Yeah female one is lil calm cause once I tried crown tail but it was nibing on guppies ... Early stage mistakes ... That makes you endup tons of aquarium lol

I would not do a betta also, it could likely end in a disaster. Yes, some have pulled it off, but when I tried it ended with dead guppies


Ps, mine was a baby female betta

Ok let me re-phrase what I said. If you don't feel comfortable adding a betta with other fish, that's fine. You could do a DG if you want. Most likely if you have a calm beta, chances are you will be ok.
