In that case, yes. I would only get a pair though. A 20g long is not sufficient space for two males. This species does well in pairs, in a well-planted tank, with some bogwood and a fine gravel or sand substrate.
Dither fish are recommended to keep the rams "comfy." They are more settled with other fish around/above them.
Upper fish can include peaceful small shoaling fish from the characins (tetra, pencilfish, hatchetfish) or rasbora (the Trigonostigma species are fine, the Boraras might be a bit small and tempting). A group of 7-9 of whichever species. Some of the tetra species will not be suitable, but many are. Keep in mind the high temp needs of the rams, as some of the species cannot manage that warm. Most available species are in our fish profiles, second tab from the left in the blue bar across the top.
