My friends' overstocking

Before I tell everyone how much he has and what all of his equipment is, how many fish do you all think could fit comfortably in a 20 gallon?
He has his way overstocked!

That kinda depends on size...a 20 would only be able to house nano fish...I'd say 4.

Blizoman you probably had a good filter! Or filtration.
None of them are fry. He has no live rock, no protein slimmer and all he has for a filter is about .5-1 inch sandbed and a HOB filter, not a big one rated for 30 or 40 gallons I think.

My bad I should have read closer before I posted. I thought tho was a freshwater thread. But my dad had I'd say 6 fish in his 29g saltwater, not counting his shrimp, snails, and crabs. Plus all his corals.
