Correct?

Should be fine. Will be crowded in teh mid section because the tetras and barbs are so active. And since you have a filter rated for 40 gallons it should be good.

Sounds like a good stocking plan to me. For some reason sometimes tiger barbs are really interested in nipping the dorsals of cories, so watch out for that. The tank looks really good.

Also, I think the 20g is a bit small for the shark, but it shouldn't have any compatibility issues with the barbs or tetras. They generally only get in disagreements with other territorial bottom dwellers. (Just for future reference).

Hopefully my experience is NOT the norm. I QT'ed my clown loaches for two weeks. They were the last & final additions to the tank. Two months later, ich outbreak. Most likely adding infected plants but if & when I get new fish they will sit in QT for at least three weeks. Just throwing in my 2 cents....

PS. NICE tank

I like the look of the large rock, it gives the tank a focal point and the fish some cover if they want it.

Sharks get a bad rap because of their name and they way they are kept. Given a good sized and a lack of other territorial bottom dwellers they can be quite docile. That said a 20 gallon tank is to small for a fish that can get to be 6"+ in length.

Personally I QT for four weeks.
