Would I be able to put these corys in my 20 gallon tank?

I have a 20 gallon tank with some small tetras, a few guppies, a bushynose pleco and 3 pepper corys. I know corys like to be in groups of about 6, so could I get 3 bronze corys to keep my pepper corys happy? Thanks.

You can but the cories will not be as happy. See my response to your question "Do pepper cory cats exclude one another?"

One note... make sure that the cories are getting enough food. Guppies are pigs and can easily cause lack of food to bottom dwelling fish. I would recommend using sinking micro pellets. This type of food makes it more difficult for the guppies to hog all of the food, which can happen even with the larger sinking pellets. The micro pellets can also be quickly swallowed by cories.
