Default 20 gallon complatiblity

I currently have a 10 gallon with fish in it. It is quickly becoming overcrowded, but i am luckily getting a 20 gallon from my friend, who cannot keep up with his fish. Here is what i plan on doing:

In my 10 gallon i want to have:
-Female betta
-an Otto or 2 or cory catfish/albino catfish
-this is probably going to be a fry growout tank

In my 20 gallon i want to have:
-2 swordtails (currently in the 20 gallon right now)
-a gourami (not sure what type it is, already in the tank)
-my mollies (i'm probably going to sell a lot of them to the LFS)
-maybe a gardneri killifish (not sure if i can have only one or i need a school of them)

Tell me if i should change anything or give me any suggestions. Also how long should i cycle the water of the 20 gallon once its set up?
10 gallon: Female Cambodian Betta, 2 cories
20 gallon: planning to put some livebearers
Outside Pond: empty for the winter

Hi Pwat...When you get the 20 gal, how long will it take you to set it up? If you can keep the filter wet, and aerated, you won't have to recycle the tank. As far as the stocking goes, think approx 20 inches of fish.......

5 gal... Robin, (Betta)
5 gal...Pete, (Betta)
5 gal...Scotty(Betta)
10 gal...Female Betta Sororiety
10 gal... Neons, Glolights and Cardinals, 1 Oto
10 gal... Ram Pair
29 gal... Mbuna Tank
29 gal... Krib Pair, Tiger Barbs, Tetras, 2 Otos
55 gal...5 Australian Rainbows, 1 Angel Fish, 1 Blue Gourami, 6 Congo Tetras, 1 Leopard Ctenopoma, 1 Clown Pleco, 1 UpsideDown Catfish,5 Otos, 1 Bronze Cory, 2 Peppered Cories,2 Panda Cories

Wohoo!!!! I see you like Killis!!!!! They can be there, no problem. The problem will be finding one. If you order online you will see they are sold by pairs, and if you order it would be better if you order more than 1 pair just in case. BUT if you manage to get 1 from some local breeder you will see why I love them! Beware, they do jump a lot when changed from 1 tank to another.
55 gallon - 3 Discus w/ company
29 gallon - Endlers w/ Cherry Shrimps
5 10 gallons - Gardneri, Striatum Moyoko, Ijebu Ode Killifish
