Please, don't refrain yourself from suggesting fish ideas. I will do my homework about what could work and what cannot. I really like the suggestions so far, might need more than a 20 gal !

Here is a Kribensis, Ablino Bristlenose Pleco and Bolivian Ram, all which are options for you. These guys are all in my 29 right now :)

Cichlids and their amazing spawning skills hahhaa.

It would work with just one female though, and if you kept 7 cardinals it would be a lil under stocked and if you kept 9 it would be packed. I'd keep plants ofc.
I would not have other fish in with cardinals in a 20g, aside from suitable substrate fish and in this case corys and/or whiptail catfish or Twig Catfish. A group of 9-12 Paracheirodon axelrodi and the catfish, that's it. Though a group of pygmy hatchetfish on top would not hurt. But no cichlids; just my view. I have had many species of "dwarf" cichlids and they always find characins annoying, to varying degrees. And in small spaces this kind of stress is significant.
