I have a 20 gallon tank with 2 mollies, one guppy, a gold algae eater, and 3 snails. The lady at the pet store said I can get more. I want non aggressive, colourful, and medium sized fish. What do you guys recommend?

I would find a bigger tank or rehome the algae eater, that's a gold variety of the Chinese Algae Eater and they get up to a foot long. They're also known to be aggressive.

Afterwards, you could probably add maybe 3-4 more guppies, and another molly, if you'd like to expand the numbers. Or, if you'd like something different, there's lots of possibilities! But first, is your aquarium a 20 gallon high, or a 20 gallon long? That will impact some of the fish you can get. For example, if you still want a bottom feeder once you move the algae eater, and if it's a long tank, you could maybe do some cory cats. I think the regular sized ones might get too big, but I'm not sure. Pygmy cories would be fine though

Definitely rehome or find another tank for the algae eater. It WILL become quite nasty and highly dangerous to small fish.
