With my guppies I keep a single Bolivian ram, diamond tetras(20 gallons may be too small for a school but perhaps a smaller species like cardinals), harlequin rasboras, Amano shrimp, crown pleco, and Cory cats.

In a 20 Gallon would choose either one more school of tetras, rasboras etc or a single peaceful center peice fish. Like a dwarf cichlid or a dwarf species of Guarami.

Since guppies are top dwelling fish i would get fish that are bottom dwelling. I would get a rubbernose pleco they dont get any bigger then 2-3 inches. I would also get some Rummy nose tetra's or cardinal tetra/neons. That or you can get some Red minor serpae tetra's those would look really nice and they school

I love mollies! They're really pretty and come in a lot of different colors. Plus they mate easily so you could experience them giving birth which is cool because they have live birth and not eggs. You'll want something for them to hide in though because they will eat their babies if they can.
