As of this morning, I am the proud new owner of a 20L gallon with a full hood cover! I also got the AquaClear 50...which is rated for 200gph. I'm excited! I will be changing the light bulb that it came with so that it works better for low light plants...I'm looking into the Life-Glo 20W since the Kelvin rating is right at 6,700K. This will be an on going process, but I'll be keeping all of you updated! *w3

What are you going to put in it. Schooling fish might be good because you can put a lot in the tank and they will school and do other cool stuff

If you want a simple T-8 bulb in 6500K to 6700K range, they are made by lots of folks and all work about the same. A 20watt sounds like a T-12, not a T-8, but they use the same pin spacing and the T-8 is a little more energy efficient.

Hey guys! Sorry it took me a while to get back on here...I've been out of town. My light fixture has a T8 in it, so I'll look around the hardware stores for something :) As far as fish go...I love Cardinal Tetras, cory cats, dwarf gouramis, and platies. I'll probably get 5 cardinals and maybe 4 cory cats. As far as the gouramis, how many do you think I can place in a 20L tank???I LOVE their body shape and coloring!
