Advice: If you want 41 fish in a 20g tank, be prepared to work on it lots. If 1 fish dies dont panic. Fish die. It happens. If lots die you have a problem. Research your fish before you buy them. You need bottom feeders and algea eaters to help keep it clean. Most fish like to be kept in groups. Feed them a variety of foods. RESEARCH, RESEARCH, RESEARCH. 25% water change once a week. You dont need to add tons chemicals. Plant food, amonia remover and cycle are all you need. Prune your plants it helps them grow.
