Miiekxo, are you familiar with our fish profiles, under the second tab from the left in the blue bar across the top of the page? The fish mentioned in this thread are included, with good info that will help you. If the name is typed identically in a post to that in the profile, it will shade, forming a link to that species profile, example Clown Pleco, Tiger Barb, etc.

I concur with the suggestions/advice from others. Just wanted to point you to more detail.

As mentioned in the profiles,
  • the dwarf gourami should not be more than a pair (= male and female) in a 20g;
  • Active fish (like the zebra danio) should not be combined with sedate fish (the gourami);
  • small fish like the beautiful glowlight danio might well be eaten by gourami
A general suggestion, a 20g is not really much space, to fish, so look to smaller fish (like the glowlight danio and sim ilar) and you will be able to have more of them for more interest. And if you are really wanting the DG, I would look at the Honey Gourami which is much safer from both the aspect of temperament and health.
