20G Stock.

I was wondering if this would be a good stock for a 20G, and if everyone would be happy in it. The dimensions are 24Lx12Dx16H.

4 Fancy Guppy
1 Albino Cory(Used to have another, but he didn't care much about it and he's perfectly happy alone.)
4 Julii Cories
4 Otocinclus
1 Honey Gourami
1 Bolivian Ram.
Would this be overstocked, would they all get along? I have the 4 guppies, the albino, and 2 Juliis right now.

I think that would be fine. The honey gouarmi might be slightly over stocking it..but I.think you'd still be okay. Otherwise could get a pair of rams instead.

Yes, I believe so. It would be the one sold as Sunset Honey Gourami.

Does it look like a dwarf gourami or is it smaller? I'm sorry for these questions but there are a few fish species sold as the honey gourami.

It was pretty pale with a slight orange/yellow tinge to it, and it looked like the dwarf that was in a different tank and was a lot smaller.

And, it's okay, I'd much rather you ask than I get the wrong fish. (:

Can you post a picture? I'm pretty sure that it's colisa chuna but I'd like to be certain.

I can't post an exact picture because I can't go to the fish store for a while, but it looked exactly like this, just paler. The tail fin was white as well.

That looks very similar to a thick lip gourami. I'm not too worried because it is the same size as a dwarf gourami but still larger than the fish I was thinking of.
