There are some very colorful killifish. You can also go with dario dario but they are quite small and require special foods (but from what I've seen of your postings I'd say you're at a pretty advanced level of the hobby and can handle it lol)

There are also some quite striking gouramis to be found or you could always go African cichlid depending on the tank size. I kept mbunas in the past and they are BEAUTIFUL.

EDIT: strike the mbunas didn't notice you said 10 or 20 gallon.

I agree mbunas are very colorful and easy to distinguish gender, but I'm only looking for a 20L in the living room.

Gorgeous fish but in my experience they will only eat baby shrimp, depending on the age of the culls this may or may not be a problem.

Eating shrimp is a plus for me, Tinman. LOL I need a fish to feed some of my produced culls.

So far I think the best choice for me is Apisto Cockatoo.

I recently got 2 pair of Kribs, (Kribensis – Pelvicachromis pulcher) and they are VERY COOL and the 2 pair I got have a LOT of color in their fins and bodys!!!

You can read about them here: http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/cichlid/kribensis.php

German Rams are another one of my Faves!!!

Let us know what you go with!!!
