20 gallon tank stocking

I have a cycled 20 gallon tank that I am lookin to completely rescape and restock, as I currently have several guppies and an ABN pleco. I was looking to stock it with something a little different that can be placed with a couple of mystery snails, since I definitely want a couple of those. All help is appreciated, thank you!

I recently added a gold gourami to my tank and i love him. Very beautiful and active, and he doesnt bother my guppies at all. Makes a nice centerpiece!

Thatís good to know, I will unfortunately probably get rid of my pleco since he is very aggressive and attacks any mystery snails I add

Gold gouramis can get quite large (about 6 inches) and have a mean streak. I don't think they're really suitable for a 20 gallon or to be housed with guppies.

Is it a 20 tall, or 20 long?

That stocking should be good. Maybe check out Pearl Gourami

It is a 20 tall. Do you guys think that a normal or a dwarf gourami would be better?

In that size I'd go with honey gourami if you want gourami. Or sparkling gourami but the are quite small.

Do you think that dwarf gouramis would be too aggressive? Iíve only ever had one and it attacked absolutely everything
