|20 gal. tank update|
Old Tank ---->http://fishprofiles.com/forums/Photo_Booth/Simple_20_Gallon___%5D/40015/
My tank looked ridiculous before so I had to do something about it.
In addition to my old Gold Guarami, I got a Blue Guarami, 4 Tiger Barbs, 2 algae eaters (I don't know what they're called, the tank they came out of said "algae eaters" and that's all) and I also scooped up 4 glass/ghost shrimp. Be honest with me and tell me what you think. Your honesty has turned my tank into what it is now.

You even got the fish to pose nicely in your first shot !
I don't expect the ghost shrimp to last long either. I'm a bit worried about your "algae eaters" most tend to get too large for a small tank, or chew on their tankmates instead of the algae. Can you try and get a close up?
Plain black or dark blue background would finish off the tank nicely. If you do decide to go with live plants, some java fern can be tied onto the plastic plants, it will eventually root onto the rock on its own.

Very nice structure you added to the tank , it looks quite real.
I personally like 20 gallon tanks since they are easy to keep and allow you a little lee way on stocking.
Definately a bit overstocked but you are well aware that you'll need a larger tank.
Keep check on your water changes to ensure water parameters and make sure you you have good filtration system to help out on water quality, aside from the air strip you added may want to think on some extra biofiltration like a hob or an internal filter and you should be fine for a while.
Also keep a look out on your cichlid species since they are quite territorial and may stir up some fights in the tank along with your shark, you can work this out by adding more structure and visual barriers to avoid confrontation.
A nice dark background will add the cherry on top for your tank as advised by Babelfish...
Any idea why your other fish died?
Keep us updated on your project and show us more pics if you have them.
All the best...

I keep on top of my water changes and I test my water regularly.
Thanks for the advice

Very nice tank! Hate to say this but people don't always need a real plant tank lol.
