Are there any Pleco‘s that will stay small that can go in a 20 gallon?

Plenty! Best in my opinion is a Bristlenose Pleco (also called a “bushy nose” Pleco). Occasionally, stores will call them by their general Latin name - Ancistrus.

They come in brown, yellow, “super” red, and “green” dragon. Photos below.

Males, when mature develop a bunch of strange growths on their nose . . . I think it may be called a copule.

The rubberlip pleco is another option for this size tank (though bristlenoses come in so many cool varieties, those are what I'd be looking at too if I didn't have so many sword plants in my tank--I hear tell they like to eat those!).
