20g stocking?

I have just recetly setup a planted 20g high, and I added 3 Panda Cory's after 8 days (not sure if that was a good idea) I also have a Zebra snail in there.

I wanted to get:
4 male Guppies
1 albino (highfin) Bristlenose Pleco
10 Neon Tetras or 6 Black Neon Tetras
and 3-6 Panda Corys, I know this is kinda crowded but I wanted to have fish at all levels of the tank, and I need an algae eater and I heard Bristlenose Plecos are great for that.

I was wondering if it's better to stick with three Panda Corys or six, I know they like others of their species around but is three OK?

Thanks for your help in advance,

---------Mara

the male guppies will declare war on each other and chase each other around to the ends of the tank... lol....

And if u want to stop that, you need to introduce a few females... well more females then males... and then the guppies will breed like rabbits and crush your bioload in less then 4 months.

make sure the pleco isnt a common pleco and its a bristle nose pleco.

theres a hugh difference..

the first one can get well over 2 feet... its typically that big fish which u see in youtube thats almost half the length of the tank.

The second one has a growth cap of 6 inches i think.

meh.... but pleco's in general produce enough waste to rival a goldfish.
