another question.... dither fish??

Thank you guys for the responses. I've gotten a pair of otos and they sure look cute. Hope they'll make it.

Problem was as predicted my barbs went crazy on them... finally I think to myself I've had enough of them and so I got rid of them. (Well, not literally, I moved them to another tank).

So now problem is what kind of dither fish would you guys recommend in place of my barbs? I would like something very peaceful. Also prefer something colourful cuz now everything in my tank xcept my clowns are kinda grey/black.

Also by the way, do otos like currents? I've just cranked my powerheads up.

Tank:
20 gal 12"x24" tank
Aquaclear 150 filter
UGF with 2 #201 powerheads

Fishes:
2 clown loaches (1.5 inch)
3 black skirt tetras (1.5 inch)
1 miscellenous blue ram (1 inch) maybe temporary
2 otos (1 inch)
2 kuhlis (1-2 inch)
4 marbled hatchets (3/4 inch)
