Stocking 20g Community Tank

I have a 20g fully cycled tank. It currently has the 5 skirt tetras, 8 neon tetras, and dwarf gourami. I'd like to get some feedback on what everybody thinks on getting the other fish shown in my aqadvisor image. Any thoughts are appreciated!

I would rehome the white skirts, they get quite big and can be pretty nippy. Increase the neons to around 15, the cories are good. Maybe a pair of gbrs?

I wouldn't add another ram. You are pushing it with a DG and a dwarf cichlid in a small tank as is. Breeding won't help. White skirts aren't nippy when kept in proper schools without longer-finned tankmates to nip (IE angels, bettas, paradise fish) but they do get a bit large for that size tank. How about getting 8 ember or rummynose tetras or harlequin rasbora instead of the skirt tetras? You should also increase the cories to around 8.

Rummies are awesome. Best schooling fish no doubt about that. But they love swimming long distances, and I dont thing they would love your tank. Definitely increase the cories, and the neons. I would personally do
15 neons
1 dwarf gourami
7 panda cories
Skip on the ram, and probably add a couple otos.

A 20 would be fine for rummynoses but I wouldn't go any smaller.

I guess you could do it, and they would be fine. But i have some in my 29 and they never stop moving. So IMO they would like to be in a longer tank. But, ya definitely not smaller.
