I currently have a 20 gallon tank with a demasoni, yellow lab, tropheus duboisi, and bumblebee in it. All fish are juvies and I wanted to know how many I can keep in this tank. I will be upgrading to a 75 gallon, since this 20 gallon was free, but not for 6 months or so. Can I keep 8-10 babies in the small tank? Thanks in advance

I wouldn't recommend it, there is a distinct possibility they will kill each other. And you will have to do at least 2x a week water changes towards the end of that 6 months once the fish get some size (depending on how large they are now- you might have to do this already).
