20L Set up

Just getting back into the hobby, now that I have a job and
therefore money to actually buy things for my tank.
Here is my 20L, been set up for 2 weeks I believe, just added
the fish last night, 10 Tetra's(not sure what type exactly) and
a Marble Angel.
Also added plants tonight; Italian vals, Rotala R., and two other
ones' i don't remember the name of.

Using 4 CLF? 23W Blubls with DIY fixture/reflector, DIY Co2,
Dry Ferts.
The tank is a 20L, filter a Cascade 150.

Nice start!! Great growth in the 10 gallon in your avatar. How about putting some of the plants from it into the 29G.

The anglefish need at least 30gallon for grow out. So may want to trade it for smaller fish.

I do not have the 10 gallon anymore actually. Been out of the hobby for a
couple of months, almost a year I think. So hopefully this tank does well, too.

How many Cory's would I be able to fit in this tank confortably? I'm for sure going
to take out the angel later on if I find a home for it. But I do want to get
another school of fish, I wanted to buy 10 Green Neon tetras, maybe 6-8cory's
and 5 Otto's? Would that be pushing the tank too much or would
I be fine? Like i said, I plan to plant most of the tank, at least all the back
side, and leave the front open to when i find some Lawnmarsh pennyworth.
