I think in gallons so your 20-25l is 5-6 gallons and your 70-75l is about 18-19 gallons.  

The smaller tank is fully stocked at one betta.  You might be able to get a couple of shrimp in there but no more than 2 in my opinion.

Your larger tank is too small for what you have.  The Pearl Gouramis alone belong in about a 29 gallon tank (which is about 110l).  There are many species of danio so we would have to know what species you have to see what size tank they need.  We will also need to know what species of cories you have.  But, regardless, danios and cories are both schooling species.  That means that you need at least 6 individuals of each one to give them some semblance of schools.

My advice to you would be to return all of the fish in the 70-75l to the shop.  Then, research fish that you have interest in.  Get some fish that can live in your size tank.

By, the way, Welcome to Badman's, Natalie.  Smiley

When in doubt, do a water change.
