I am doing a fish in cycle in my new 20 long. I currently have 3 platies, 1 Molly and 2 snails. I have 2 filters running (ac 30 and aqueon 10). It has black sand with some plants and also so fake decorations. I plan to add a school of small fish. I am undecided between glo danios or neon tetras. I definitely want some cories but I am undecided on what type. We like active fish (3 yr old boy and 1 yr old girl like to watch them). The pygmy cories are very cute but I think they are more mid level so I don't know about that with a school. I also like the habrosus which are very similar but seem more bottom dwellers, but at the store they weren't as active as the pygmy. Then I also think the panda and albino cories are adorable. Any suggestions on which to go with? Any ideas for other fish to stock my tank with? We also plan to get some shrimp.

You could do 6 of each species, pandas get around 1.5 inches, though my females are much closer to 2 inches, and Habrosus only get between .75-1inch, most of the ones i’ve ever seen aren’t even at the 1 inch mark
