If I remember right a 20H doesn't have a large bottom area. Have you considered getting a couple bright colored snails like golden mystery snails, pink or blue ramshorns, or some of the more decorative nerite snails? Also what about shrimp, you could do some red cherry shrimp for color and interest. Both snails and shrimp make good clean up crews.

You could always get some dwarf corys.

I had Panda Corys in a 20 high, I think that's enough space for them. I wouldn't go with the "larger" cory like Sterbai though. You could do 4-6 panda, dwarf or pygmy cories in there.
