I have created a flooded forest floor tank with driftwood and a lot of leaf litter and no plants other than some riparian vegetation that I actually intended for Cardinal Tetra, however all the Cardinal Tetra that I have seen available recently have either been poor quality or at extortionate prices. However, I see similar looking habitats all over the North East in shallow streams and also in ponds and lakes. All the fish I see around here in them are too big for a 20 gallon (Bass, Large Sunfish Species). I was wondering if anyone keeps native fish in this sort of setup? Pygmy Sunfish setups seem to all have lots of vegetation and this tank wasn't going to have any, I am going to order some for a planted 10 gallon I have also setup though.
