I don't really like suggesting specific fish species to others, as it is your aquarium. When i see problems I comment, as i did previously. But have a browse in the profiles, under cyprinids for the medium rasbora, and characins for some peaceful tetra. In a 20g I would have just one group of maybe 7 or 8, depending upon species.

Yes. They are peaceful, and tend to remain in the upper half of the water column, so that works well with dwarf cichlids that tend to stay in the lower half.

I have to put a nod in for Von Rio Tetras. I love mine - they're fun to watch, have a nice bit of color and seem to do really well together. I have them in a 16g and they're doing great. (They've already spawned once that I know of...)

I just stocked my 20G tank today and I put 6 tiger barbs (3 regular, 3 green), 3 Cory Cats, 1 Pleco, & 1 ADF.

I'm debating on moving the ADF to my 50G tank though since barbs tend to be semi-aggressive at times if there aren't enough in the tank but I'm not sure yet, we'll see how it goes but I'm sure he'll be fine in there.

I'm not recommending any of the fish above since it's your aquarium but I thought I'd chime in since I just did the exact same thing you are in the process of doing.

I did however skip the traditional cycling methods by planting the tank, which I do with all of the tanks I get now and I haven't had a problem to this date.
