    Hi there!

    I have a 20 gallon hex tank cycling, and am researching to figure out how to stock it.

    I want a clown pleco (NOT loach, haha) for the bottom, 5 to 7 1 /1.5 inch middle dwellers, and 3 or 4 guppies for the top. Is this acceptable, or do you think it would be too crowded?

    Thanks!!

    I think you should probably choose either the guppies or a school, I don't think both would work well

    Thanks! How about one larger fish, say, a dwarf gourami with some guppies?

    Or with the school?

    Possibly, I'm not an expert though. Maybe @TexasDomer could give some advice? I got good advice from them before about stocking

    Agreed texasdomer is definitely the person to ask about stocking. Are you able to give the dimensions of the tank (I appreciate it is slightly unusual being a hex)? That often helps with stocking advice.
