opinions on stocking 20 Gallon Tank

    I have an established 20g L.

    currently in it I have:
    1 female twinbar platy who is pregnant
    2 platy fry about 1/2 an inch survivors from a previous pregnancy.
    6 danios (3 gold and 3 zebra)
    5 corry (3 emerald and their two jubli friends rescued they all school together)
    1 bn

    I had an apple mystery snail but it passed taking my two plates with it from an ammonia spike when I was away on vacation. Tank stable reading back normal now all fish healthy.

    so my question is. I was considering on getting another schooling fish something small like neons, or some other sort wanted something colorful that popped in a way.

    would this overload my tank or do you have other suggestions. I do weekly maintenance and I don't know of it will make a difference but when I am done with my betta I plan on working on replanting this tank with live instead of fake plants.

    I'd say you were about stocked, especially if your platy is due to drop more fry.
    I wouldn't add anything else.

    Agreed this is about fully stocked. I don't really recommend BN Pleco's in anything below 30g either. Maybe look towards getting another tank? :D

    otherwise maybe, if you keep up on water changes you could add a few (3) male guppies

    I figured just thought I would ask and see what others thought. It does not hurt to ask
