What to go with these fish?
Hello. I have a 20 gallon tank and I want a school of Neon Tetras, Corys and a honey or dwarf gourami. I want another school of fish to go with the neons and bottom feeders. What would be a good fish to go with these? At first I was thinking of Cherry Barbs, but changed my mind. What are some small fish that get along with these others? ThANkS!!

I think that the neons, cories and gourami are good for a 20 and adding anything else will be overstocked. Especially another school of fish.55 gallon planted community
30 gallon planted community
10 gallon planted wild type guppies and cherry shrimp

agree if you got a school of say 8-10 neons and 6 cory's with a dwarf gourami you would already be at the 20" of fish limit. gourami's have a bio load of more than the 2-2 1/2" they take up. kind of like the equivilant of maybe 4 neons. if you scrap the cory's and go with 2 otos you might squeak in 6 ember tetra's or sone other nano fish.

I was going with only 6 neons, not 8-10.

6 marbled hatchet fish.They take up space not used by the others and have a very small bioload.

6 neons is just barely a school and the minimum considered a school. I would get more neons and a few hatchets and forget anything else.
