20G tank, what else to stock with?

Hey everyone Brand new to the forum!

Alright, so I'm fairly new to the whole aquarium experience, besides a 10G tank that I had for a couple of years, but gave up on that since I didn't have the knowledge or the time to take care of it. Turns out, I now have the time, so a couple of months ago, I bought a 20G aquarium kit for only $99 at Petco that included the filter, heater, thermometer etc.

Well, after it finished cycling, I started to add a couple of fish every other week. So far, I have a dwarf gourami, 5 neon tetras, and 3 platy's. I also have 3 Amazon Swordtails (The plants) along with a mixture of other plastic plants. I also have 3 rocks in there that the feesh love to swim through and around, hide behind etc.

Well, my question to you, is, what other types of fish should I add to the aquarium? I was thinking about getting some more plants, but I have no idea what types of fish to get.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Hello and welcome the forum!
You don't have any bottom fish. How about some cory or kuhli loaches. Both the fish that I mentioned, do best in groups of 6 or more.

After I posted this thread, I searched around on the web and started considering Cory's. I'll probably end up getting some of those, but do you think I have room for 6+ of them?

I think you have the room. Some cory get bigger than others. I would choice a cory that stays somewhat small.

Great Thank you!

I'm headed over to the fish store on Friday. Does anyone else have suggestions?

I agree with TM on the corries, that are great bottom dwellers....and depending on the species, they will stay relatively small.....

Any of the small corys would be good. I personally like them all. But if I had to choose just one kind it would be the Leopard ones. Good luck with your fish.
