ok because i have to do some stuff change tanks yadyyaya and blah blah i have an empty 20 gallon tank and i am ok with having only one fish.( in my book if its a bottom feeder or does not get off the ground that much its not a fish even ifs a pleco or whatever.) ok my stocking will be like this a single jewel cicjlid and a ''non'' fish a bristle nose pleco albino. the tank has a huge piece of drift wood and is planted. oh and i have only a 20 gallon filter and i did my research on aqadvisor.com but i did other research.

I would not put a Jewel cichlid (species is Hemichromis bimaculatus) in a 20g tank; this fish can attain 8 inches in the wild, though 6 inches in aquaria is normal.  But it needs space, and a 20g does not provide that.  A 4-foot tank is considered by most as minimum.  You can read more in the profile on this site, here is the link:

Agreed Byron, but that profile is one of the older ones and in need of editing so a bit of a mess. Embarassed
