The profile for ADFs on Badman's says: Soft substrate,keep with peaceful fish, very easy after initial acclimation. Shallower tanks are better, no-more than 18 tall is recommended. So, you should be OK.


20 gal high with 8 Glofish, 3 Pristella Tetras, 3 Lemon Tetras and 2 Aspidoras.

it maybe an idea to put some stones in the bottom of tank, they can then launch themselves from them to get to the top (thereby making the top not 18" but maybe 15" or so).  I would say that 15" is about the max height for ADF's.
