Hi all,


New to this forum as a user but have been following this forum as a reader for a while. Setting up a 20 gallon long tank for my university. Tank will hopefully be all native fish. The tank is a 20 gallon long with gravel, sand, some stones, manzanita wood, jungle val and anacharis, an aquaclear 30, and an 80 gph pump at one end. What are some native stocking options for this tank? Ideally it would have a couple species in it, but I am open to anything. If there aren't any good CA natives for a tank like this, I may opt to just get some native-looking fish like fathead minnows or feeder guppies to put in it. I have included an image of the tank set up right now with some white cloud minnows.


Thank you!

Tank looks great, but you might not be able to do much with Cali natives... check your local regulations... you might have to road trip "back east"... my recommendation would be my local yellowfin shiners or some of the other similar species.
