In January, I will have an empty 20g high to play around with; are there any brackish fish that would do well in this small of a tank? I've seen some neat little critters, and I think I could really enjoy the additional variety, but I trust you all to guide me to compatible picks. I'm not committed to this course of action yet, but I think there's a lot of potential for fun!

Thanks! :-)

Yes I'm having alot of fun with the brackish tank myself! There are plenty of ways to go and this link might help you choose one.

Thanks Kenny! I saw those bumblebee gobies at a Petsmart or something I was wandering thru looking for decorations, and they were so cute... Most of these look like they'd need something much bigger than a 20g, but the research is just beginning! :-)

I was torn between the Indian Glassfish and Celebies Rainbowfish for my bracksih tank. I took the glassfish because the lfs made a special order for me. But the rainbows are awfully nice too! But I just cant house both schools.

I am still hunting for a Wresteling Halfbeak.

My tank, although 37g, will have a similar stocking level to a 20 due to the limited footprint of the cubelike shape.

I have:
3 amano shrimp / 3 ghost shrimp
1 Red Clawed Crab
5 Indian glassfish
4 Bumblebee gobies
