    I have a 20 long with 35 chilis, 12 pygmy cory, 3 kuhli loaches and 3 juvenile bamboo shrimp. Seems like a lot but it really isn't. The only fish I think may be cramped are the corys and I think. I have 20 albinos in my 75, I can't see 10 in a 20 hex, especially with my almost 3" female tanks.
    75g- Plecos, Rainbowfish, Edlers, Espei, Gouramis, Cory, Loaches, Amano, and misc.
    Two 5.5g- Shrimp tanks; one with 4 chili rasbora & Bloody Mary and second with Blue Dream shrimp
    5.5g- Rescue female betta Lucky Star
    20L- Rescue betta Tony Stark and pygmy corys
    20L- Pygmy cory, 2 vampire/rock shrimp, ember tetras and female guppies

    I agree.

    I tend to overstock a few of my tanks a "wee" bit, but with the most careful research and advice I can find, as well as having established over-filtered tanks

    But this hex tank footprint for corys concerns me, I would look for more of a "mid-sized" cory, and have only 6, as well.

    C. metae and C. leucomelas may work, as well as C. panda

    A couple of other small tetra's come to mind that would well with this tank would be; Ember tetra and Yellow phantom's.

    The other thing is we dont know ph, gh/kh.
    I think a large school/shoal looks better than multiple. Especially in smaller tanks. If applicable I vote for
    Embers, cpd, chilis, emeralds, c.killi, flags, endlers.
    A larger group of one of these depending on parameters

    No emeralds or flagfish for a tank this size, but the rest are good suggestions.

    Why no emarld rasbora. I think a dozen easy. And why not pair flags? Most recommend a 10 for emeralds. Ive keep them fine. Will be lucky to make 3/4" . Flags are fish I know well. Some arguments over a 10 or 20. But that tank would work.

    I was thinking of the wrong fish with the emeralds, my bad....male flag fish can be very territorial though, not the best community fish

    Can be yes. Flags are hardly mentioned in stocking lists. A pair would be cool in that tank with 75 percent plant mass imo. Or grab some females.

    I take it every one is referring to Jordanella floridan for the Flag fish?
    If so personally would skip the idea. They are prone to aggression, and also tend to me more of a cooler water spices on the whole.
