    I currently have a 20 gallon tank pertaining:
    2 Angelfish
    1 Dwarf Gourami
    1 Dalmatian Molly

    Is my tank overstocked? Would I be able to add any other fish, and would I be able to add an algae eater?

    Thanks,
    MyFishKaren

    Your tank is too small for Angels, I also think 20 g is too small for Mollies also they are very social fish and should be kept in groups.

    Only the dwarf gourami is suitable for a 20gal tank. The angels will get too large and as Nick said, mollies prefer company so adding friends won't go well in that small a tank.
