cory setup question

Quick setup question. I'm currently cycling my first aquarium (20g long) and want to set it up for a group of 6 corydoras aeneus, either bronze or albino variety I've not decided yet. I've read that they need places to shelter; will they be happy to shelter between plants or do they like to have a cave of some sort? Given that I'm limited on space I don't want to add something unnecessary. Thanks :)

Thanks :) I've seen a cave that looks like a big pebble but I wasn't sure if they'd go in a smallish hole to get inside. I'll keep looking but will definitely get them a hideout then :)
Thanks, do you mean bogwood as well as a hiding place? I've got a small piece in there at the moment, I'm thinking of either getting a piece of slate to rest against it to make a hideout or I've seen a half coconut shell covered in moss that might work. Leaving 20% free space sounds like a good plan, most of the caves I've looked at would take up too much space I think.
