I've been thinking about this too. Danio's, Tetras, A small cat, gouramis (sp). I want a male Betta in there too.Not sure if that is big enough for a convict. Just a few of my thoughts.

Tanganyika Shellies or sand dwellers do well in that size tank. Very colorful and active. check out Dave's rare aquarium fish for an idea of what is out there. here is a link. www.davesfish.com/

Thanks for the reply. You know I thought about tangs for a while, but cant really get them around here as all i have are the big box stores like petco and petsmart.

How would calvus do in this tank? and how many do you think would workout?

there is a dwarf calvus that might be ok but shellies are the best bet for a 20 if you want more than one fish. shellies do great in 10 gal and 20 is ideal another place to look is Reserve stock cichlids www.reservestockcichlids.com/home.php

they have almost every thing also www.shelldwellers.com/index.php
can give you good info. reserve has the dwarf calvus right now.
