"When larger, these fish may prey upon smaller tankmates" that fish is out the equation for me

I couldn't figure out what the brown fishes are, and all they are is female cherry barbs, thanks dude!

Catfish is reclusive indeed, he/she only comes out to swim for 10-20 seconds at night and then goes back to his/her cave.

+1 Jeaninel. I have 2 male cherry barbs and 5 females in my 90g and what you have are definetly the same. They will grow to 2" so are fine for your tank.

I also have 4 of the denison barbs aka manyothernames as Kym mentoned:). They will grow to 5-6" so really are going to be a bit big for a 20g/72L tank.

The common pleco is going to be WAY too big for that size of a tank. I have 2 bristlenose plecos that grow to 4-5" max in my 90g tank. I wouldn't want a common pleco in my tank due to its large full grown size.

Your cherry barbs look healthly!!

Well, the knifefish would get too big for your tank anyways. 50g (189 litres) is minimum. I have him in a 55g (208 litres). LOL

For the longest time he was not big enough to eat smaller fish... I had some tetras in the tank.... till one day last month one up and dissapeared, so I moved them all to the 5g hex.
