20g stocking help

In the process of fish I cycling a 20g high. Currently have 4 rasboras who are doing great. Tank is heavily planted. Even though it is early I am planning out my stocked tank. Would love to get some input to see if it will work and not be overstocked.

6-8 rasboras
4-6 Cory's. not sure which type
1 dwarf gourami

Really like blue rams but since i don't have a long tank might not work

If no rams maybe a peacock grungeon. Do you get one or a pair?
Any other suggestions

Ty

Ammonia dropping and nitrites starting to rise so i guess I am in the next phase of my cycle. Fish still looking really good.

Still wondering of my proposed stock list will work

The old rule of thumb is one inch of fish per gallon of water, but u also have to pay attention to there aggressiveness and water perimeters, i use this website for my information on fish stats
Aquarium Fish: Tropical Freshwater Fish and Saltwater Fish for Home Aquariums

hope it helps

You should not put rams in a 20g high, but otherwise you will be fine with the rest but watch out because peacock gudgeon males can get a bit aggresive when breeding!
