I wouldn't try it. Black skirt tetras can be nippy and even the female puffers can cause problems. To me it would be a risky move.

Agree. Have a browse through the characins in our profiles, there are several that are colourful and would work.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

It would have to be a small (dwarf) species, given the 20g tank. One of the South American dwarf species, in a pair, might work, depending upon which species.
