    Would 20 gallons be big enough for 6 black skirt tetras, 6 Cory catfish and a dwarf gourami? I've been told it'd be okay but I want to make sure! Thanks!!!

    In a 20 long, yes. In a 20 high, no.

    All depends on filtration.. lets say you use a sponge filter. Then no. Or you use a 100 gph filter. Then no. Make sure you get the right filter. And have the necessary bacteria established either with a fish in or fishless cycle.
