    I'd lose the angelfish or get a 29 long instead, those are the recommended minimum for angels

    What kind of cories were you thinking of? You could do a full group of 6 Pygmy cories to increase the school size. Also I would not reccomend an angelfish for this size tank as they get too large. A dwarf gourami, ram, or honey gourami would work well for other centerpiece fish options.

    As a side note be aware that mollies will breed like bunnies.

    a angelfish will not work, the corydoras need to be in a group of 6 and the rest seemes fine

    BTW welcome to fishlore

    I don't think the BN Pleco will work in that tank as well. I think 20 is too small for them due to their tendencies to foul up the water.

    No, Cory’s need schools of at least 6 of their own kind.

    That one would work great, though good luck getting a zebra for less than a few hundred if you don't mind me saying

    I would not do mollies in a 20 gallon. They are large and messy. How about a few platies instead?

    I'd say that a bn is ok in a 20g, they usually only get to about 4"

    Aren’t most albino corys Corydoras aeneus, same as bronze corys? Same species, so they would hang out together.

    That is not true. They are decent size messy fish that need a 29 gallon tank minimum in my humble opinion.

    The minimum for them is a 24” by 12” footprint.

    What about this?
    x1 clown pleco (needs driftwood)
    x6-8 panda corydora
    x4 male platies

    I would recommend an Aquaclear 70 or equivalent as a filter for that stock.
