As long as the upside down catfish you are referring to is Synodontis nigriventris I would consider this fine for a 20g.

And, make sure the Dwarf Gourami are a pair, male and female, not two males. Check the info in our profile, click on the shaded name here to go to the profile.

If both are males, I would return one and try to get a female. If not, the one will be fine in a 20g.

I would not get Bleeding Heart Tetra for a 20g. All tetra should be kept in groups of at least 6, some species need more, many do better with more, but 6 is minimal. This species is larger than many and needs room. If you check our profile [click on the shaded name to see it] you will understand.
