Alrighty all sounds good. I have researched the fish I have put in so far and they are doing great but I am just not completely sure when it comes to schooling fish. I could get my cities ph lvl etc but I don't have city water I have well water and I assume that makes a difference? but who know's maybe not. If I don't really have enough room for schooling fish then what should I get??

So far you have 16" of fish out of 20" going by this will help you get started. 1" of fish per gallon that is if you only have a 20 gallon filter on and no real plants. If you up your filtration, add a bubbler, and add real plants you can add a couple more inches of fish. Here are a few you can get that go with guppies.

Dwarf gourami, Hatchet fish, one shark, or american flag fish.
