Who plays nicely with whom? Will these breeds share a tank without eating each other? "Dis is da place"

20 gallon dwarf cichlid community

Hi guys,
I was wondering if I could put a pair of GBR's, 2 cory catfish, 1 pearl gourami, 1 viper shrimp, and 4 cardinal tetras in a 20 gallon tall. Also would a trio of Cockatoo cichlids (1 male/2females) work instead of the GRB's.

1 viper shrimp ... you mean wood shrimp: Atya or Atyopsis

yes
you could have those INSTEAD
but
NOT in addition to


the cichlids are territorial in my experience
if you had a bigger tank you could have both types together

Should I add more cardinals/Cory cats, or another species? Also I forgot to mention that I have 1 Kahului loach. Would this be a problem with the cockatoo cichlids.
