If it's a 20H, I wouldn't add another dwarf cichlid. If it's a 20L, you might be able to get away with adding the ram, but I would still stick with one dwarf cichlid in a tank that size. I think what would fit best would be a mid-bottom school like a smallish tetra or some cories or kuhli loaches.

Agree with Siva. Your best bet would be some Corys like Panda Cory (about 5-6) or a small school of nano fish like ember tetra, or the loaches.

corys are the way to go. Sterbia are very cool.

Sterbai are pretty big for a 20 gal. I would stick with a smaller cory like pandas, or even julii's should be OK.
