What type of tetra and gourami are you wanting? A 29 high would be a better option IMO because the extra height will be better for having fish in different levels of the water column. A 40b would really open up your options as well. But if you want a 20 you could do a dwarf gourami or sparkling gourami with small tetra like neons or cardinals or small rasbora like brilliant rasbora . Cherry barbs would be good too You’re going to want some driftwood as well for the clown pleco

A 20 would work for those but I still think you would enjoy a 29 more in the long run, it still has the same footprint, it’s just taller
