I like filters in tanks. I tried a 10g without, after a few months bought a sponge. Water is much clearer.
I was just re-thinking the fish. I might suggest just one group. Looking at my 20g tall, i can't really see two groups of 7 of the medium tetra. A group of 7 of the rasbora, with 4-5 corys, would be lovely. And a group of 5 sparkling gourami. And for some more colour, you could look at one of the "dwarf" species with these, say Ember Tetra. Or Dario dario, these really are beautiful fish.
I also missed the Lamp Eye, which i assume is the same as our Beacon Tetra. These are a bit too active for a 20g, and they get large.
