I'm debating between cories and platies or none at all with my planned sorority. Seems the platies will overstock my tank and not allow me to get as many girls; same with the cories. I have a 20g as well. Thoughts?

Well it really is up to you and the type/amount of filtration and water changes you want to do. But Live plants are awesome at keeping the bio load down.

I personally want to have a mixed interesting tank,with female bettas, but i also have a soft spot for live bearers.
I also like having bottom dwellers.

I say if you want more girls then go for it, leave the platies out.

Im definitely getting live plants and am good on filtration. I've decided on 6 each of platys and girls; no bottom dwellers unless ghost or cherry shrimp count lol.
