Albino Cories are nice, I don't think they are shy.

I like the albino ones... I haven't seen the bronze ones so I don't know about them

Bronze, albino, julii, peppered, black spotted, and elegant are all fine. Pandas are shyer, so are most of the pygmy varieties.
Personally, I only recommend 4 albino/broze/peppered since they reach about 3 inches, but the julii only reach 2 inches, so 6 of those would be fine.
Also, as long as you get like 6 pandas, they will be fine. They find security in numbers, so they should be fine if you get 6 of them.

I REALLY like the juliis! I'll see if my LFS has them next time I'm in.

IMO bronze, emerald, albino, spotted/peppered are all too large for a 20H. That tank really doesn't have a big enough footprint for a shoal of 2.5-3" catfish. I would stick with panda's, or maybe false julii's, but even the false julii's get a little big for that tank.

I agree, I just put pandas into my 20g. They are full grown and pretty small.

I was also worried about the footprint. That's why I didn't stock it too heavily.
