First, Yoyo loaches are better with a group of 5+. They get to 4-5" long. He will out grow a 20gallon in a short amount of time. They like to be able to swim and never seem to stop. I have 6 in my 90gallon tank. Might not be the best choice for that tank.

I just picked up two Yoyos myself. I was aiming to get two more Dojos (I had 4 and two died, not sure why, everyone else fine, water tested fine). My guy said you can mix and match, I'm hoping he's right. Also in a 20 gal. I'm okay with getting a bigger tank at some point or moving them to my 55 gal. They're nice looking
