    Hello, I am planning to add new fish to my 20g long freshwater setup.
    So far I have
    1x clown pleco
    5x flame tetra
    4x shrimp
    3x cories
    1x gold algae eater
    3x marbled hatchetfish

    I am planning to add
    6x lemon tetra
    6x royal tetra

    Can someone please tell me if I am overstocking or if fish aren’t compatible?

    Just from looking at it, your tank sounds to be maxed out. You really can’t have more than 1 school of fish in a 20 gallon. There isn’t enough room.
    Clown plecos, although stay small, produce a ton of waste. I wouldn’t recommend for a 20 gallon.
    The tetras are fine in a 20.
    Shrimp are fine but will probably have a hard time populating.
    Cories need 4 or more in a shoal.
    The “gold algae eater” might be an albino chinese algae eater, can you post a picture of it? If it is, it is not suited for your tank and get very aggressive as they get older.
    The marbled hatchetfish are good but need groups of 6 or more.
