need help with idea on new fish to get for 20 gallon tanks
 
I've been trying to set up a new planted 20G tank for myself with some Hardy fish that are calm but something a little unusual/ different because right now my system crashed after the last island wide power outage and so far my half moon betta and 2 checkered barbs are still alive, so I need ideas for 4new groups of fish(2-4)

The other 20G I am currently working on is for my grandfather. My grandfather and i both share a love for dojo eels So right now I am looking for either import or nice local fish. maybe 6 medium mid-level fish and 2 fish were their max size is perfect for a 20 gallon

Thanks

Well dojo tend to up lift plants and like to hide in substrate. If I was you I would reconsider dojo as a community fish for a planted tank go with corys.

Yeah with the dojo I know they dig up just about everything but I was kinda thinking of finding driftwood that would sit high and have maybe 1 - 1.5inches of clearance and just coating the top with java moss and different types of Anubis along with something to add a little more color

Dojo I can get locally but these are the standard ones not golden. I like the spotted ones much better. I would go with danios, tetras, barbs, or even forktails or peacock gobies.

so far i have 2 different list for that dojo tank
1. dojo eels, checkered barbs, bronze corys, and marbled hatchet
2. " , african butterflyfish, so e kind of mid level fish with bright colors
