Sounds like a good plan. I never had Pygmy but being they are much smaller i may go that route. But with all our tanks we have bent the rules as far as stocking goes so I might not be the best person to listen to

Ya I am leaning towards the pygmy cories. Mostly because it is a 20 high so there is less floor space for the albino cories.

If your 20 tall isn't set up yet and you still have time to go with a 20 long you may be able to get away with other types of corys.

Unfortunately I have already purchased a 20 high because a 20 long doesn't fit anywhere in my room.

I think you will do fine with the pygmy then. Post pics when you have it set up.

Any recommendations for an exact number of fish. I was a bit general and said 8-10 neons, 2-4 Honeys, and 6-8 Pygmys.

Personally I would make the pygmy school around 10

Based off personal preference I would switch the tetras for rasboras but regardless I think the numbers are fine.

Actually I am considering rasboras at the moment. I really like chili rasboras, harlequins, galaxy rasboras, and the lambchops. But I think harlequins are a bit bigger than neons so I am not sure. So I wouldn't be able to have as big of a school if I did go with the harlequins.
