What about axolotyl's? Can be a bit carnivourous. I bought another to keep my one company but it was a bit smaller than the orginal. Came down one morning to find it sticking out of the bigger ones mouth ohmy.gif
May get some more for a little project that may come up.

That is one weird fish ohmy.gif

Looking into the tetra's a little it seems 9/10 should be ok in a 30g with the help of an external filter.

For those interested they actually do have teeth:

That's what I thought when I saw this http://www.fishdeals...ucktooth_tetra/ laugh.gif

Will a shoal fit in my size tank?


actually, they will likely only grow to be 3". at its peak, my shoal was well over 300 strong, and not a single one even close to a true 4".
i have also corresponded with many experts who have worked with them both captive and in the wild, and nobody has seen this alleged 6" exodon. it is the general agreement that the average max size of your E.Paradoxus will be 3.8"

exodons should be kept in a minimum shoal of 10, and while this may seem like a little much for a 20g, it is absolutely doable. as long as you maintain WP, and have good filtration, you will have nothing to worry about. in fact, even with 10 in a 20g, the tank will look pretty empty. i would suggest filling the empty space wit live plants.

if you have any questions, feel free to shoot me a PM
