20 gallon?

I have a twentu gallon planted, heated tank,filtered. It has a PH of 7.6. I have 12ish guppies. 1 Emperor Tetra. 3 albino cories. 1 CPD. Should I get two more emperors or two more cories. or should I get 4 more CPDS instead of 2.

It seems like you're already at capacity for stocking with that number of fish in a 20 gallon. Do you have another tank that you can use to switch out some of these fish? Maybe you could get more of the fish that should be in groups and split them between two tanks?

Emperor tetras should be in groups of 5 or more
CPDs should be in a gorup of 5 or more
Corys should be in a group of 4-5 or more

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)
