Good Stocking?

    So had a previous thread but no one is answering my questions anymore. I came up with a tentative stocking... please let me know if this works. 20 gallon tank with temps ranging from 75-85 degrees Fahrenheit throughout the year (it gets very hot here in the summer months so I take my heater off and let the heat of the air heat the water).

    5 zebra danios (adding 2 to the 3 I already have)
    2 African cichlids (or any other cichlid that would be good)
    1-2 nerite snails

    Please let me know your suggestions!

    I don't want anything small like the cardinal tetras, plus my lps doesn't have any in stock. Any other suggestions to replace those? And could I do cories instead of loaches? Those kuhli loaches creep me out!! Or maybe a pleco, one of the breeds that stays small?

    And I would say the tank is more tall than long. Not sure of exact dimensions.

    Zebra danios definitely like cooler temps-top end of heat is mid 70's so in the long run they will become stressed. I would look at fish that like to shoal and like higher temps.

    6-8 cherry barbs maybe instead of the tetras?
    Yeah you could do 6 albino or bronze cories.
    A clown pleco would work.

    Can you measure the tank with a ruler?
