fish stocking 20 Gallon Tank

    I will have a 12"x24"x16" 20 gallon freshwater aquarium. I was thinking of stocking it with 3 male guppies, 3 male mollies, 6 ghost shrimp, 2 corries, and possibly cherry barbs. My question is, is this overstocked and if not how many cherry barbs could/should i get. If you have a better fish count suggestion please let me know.

    I think you should do 4 cories, personally. Mollies get bigger, up to 3 or 4 inches, so you have to consider that too.
