Good fish to add to this tank?

I am going to start cycling a 20 gallon long tank tomorrow. I know for sure it will have 6 glolight tetras. I also wanted to add a bristlenose pleco. Is there any center piece fish I could add? Would a betta do okay with the pleco? Any ideas would be great.

A betta would be okay with the pleco, not sure about the tetras though. In a 20 you have a decent amount of options, some tiger endlers would be awesome, danios, rasboras, cory's, guppies, or you can make it a sorority tank!

I would add about 6 more tetra. The larger the group, the better they do.

Honestly I don't think that tank is large enough for a centerpiece fish. You could look into a school of cories for the bottom, tho.

I agree to add 6 more tetras.

Bristlenose plecos make tons of waste. You need to be very diligent on your water changes. 25% min.

I'd do:
  • Single betta
  • 12 glowlight tetras
  • 1 bristlenose
