20G Long stocking options?

I had 3 females that were previously in a sorority together, but separated when I broke the sorority down. I bought them from a LFS and they were in a tank together, so they have fairly decent temperments. My tank is currently cycling, but for future stocking options, what can I put in with the 3 females? I would prefer not to have: African dwarf frogs, white clouds (pretty sure they are coldwater anyway), snails, or a sorority. Just preferences. I would like to have a colorful tank with some variety if possible; however, my current community tanks are all Betta-free. Can I have some suggestions? Please and thank you! :)

If you want a betta-free community, I think a pair of Golden Rams, a school of 6 Pencilfish, and 6 Panda Cories would look nice.

Possibly only Female Bettas? I would love that someday!

I'm sorry, I read it again and realized that I was not very clear! I do have three female Bettas that will be in the tank and I would like to stock the tank with other fish, as well. I don't really want another sorority and I would prefer to have a good variety of fish. :) I'm sorry I was confusing! :)

I know some people think neon tetras are overrated, but I really enjoy them. You could do a school with them and possibly some otos or cories?

I have a few community tanks that have a male Betta, and either Platy's or Guppies.. Plenty of colour, and they seem to get along quite well together..

Maybe too well, a few days ago I noticed my red male Fin trying to mate with one of the larger female Platys..

I have black kuhli loaches in my 20L with a betta. They don't add much in the way of color, but their antics are hysterical to watch.
