Few things worry an aquarist like the thought of a slow leak draining an aquarium through the night or an accidental bump leading to breakage. With SeaClear Rectangular 20 Gallon Aquarium Combos, you don’t need to worry about an aquarium leak or break any more. This acrylic aquarium is incredibly durable, and its high-quality seams are virtually leak-proof. SeaClear Rectangular 20 Gallon Aquarium Combos are made of tough acrylic. In fact, acrylic is 17 times stronger than glass. This acrylic aquarium can hold up to a little rough usage. Despite its strength, acrylic is also relatively lightweight compared to glass. This can make transporting, lifting and setting up the 20 gallon fish tank a little easier. Another big benefit of acrylic is that it doesn’t corrode in saltwater. That means you can use this 20 gallon fish tank for saltwater or freshwater use. If you’ve always dreamed of giving a saltwater aquarium a try, this acrylic aquarium will provide you plenty of years of solid use. SeaClear Rectangular 20 Gallon Aquarium Combos are constructed to be nearly leak-proof. The seams are molecularly bonded and heat polished, so that they are incredibly strong and long lasting. You won’t ever have to worry about a leak draining your aquarium while you are away from the home. This 20 gallon fish tank comes with a fluorescent light fixture (bulb not included) so that you can illuminate your underwater showpiece. If you are ready to take on the satisfying challenge of creating a freshwater or saltwater aquarium, make sure you start with a sturdy tank that will give your fish, plants and underwater life a safe home. This SeaClear 20 gallon aquarium will not disappoint!

12. Lighting. A nicely lit tank looks lovely and provides light for your plants. If you aren’t interested in going out and buying a tank hood that includes a light, just get a and clip it on to your tank or something nearby (make sure that you always have some kind of cover on the tank, though, as bettas can jump out!). Look for a bulb that advertises as being full-spectrum (meaning it mimics the full light spectrum of natural daylight), somewhere between 5000-7000k, and 2 watts per gallon of your tank (so in a 10-gallon tank you want at least a 20 watt light). These specifications are the ideal ones for growing plants. Once you have your lighting, I’d personally also recommend investing in a . Fish have a day and night cycle and if you leave your lights on too long you will get algae growth, so setting up a timer scheduled to turn your tank light on for 6-8 hours per day will save you the trouble of having to turn it on and off at the proper times yourself.

So you have a 20 gallon aquarium and need a hood and light to go with it? sounds pretty familiar. When I bought my own tank I found a used 20 long. As I already had plenty of fish keeping experience it didn't take long to have my tank fully up and running with the best 20 gallon aquarium hood I could find. For this guide I will be focused on 20 longs, 30L x 13W x 13H, and 20 talls, 24L 13W 17H. I personally like to give my fish more width to watch them swim but tall tanks allow for different designs and beautiful plant/coral displays. This is the second video of my aquarium showcase series. While not the most aesthetically pleasing tank, my 20 long still holds a special place in my heart. It's a tank where I don't have to worry about fertilizers, plants, and algae, and where I can really appreciate the beauty of the fish alone.

Also known as my snail killing tank, my 20 gallon houses many loaches that love snacking on the various pest snails that are thrown in there. Even the Electric Blue Acara and Rainbow Cichlid have caught on, snagging many of the crushed snails before they even reach the bottom!

Keep an eye on my rainbow cichlid; it's really showing off its colors in this video!

(In the next couple of months, I'll be getting a 65 gallon tank. I will most likely be transferring the EBA and Rainbow to this tank)Showing you guys my 20 gal long Aqueon fish tank , with live plants , 4 guppies & a baby bristlenose pleco! :D let me know if you guys want me to maybe do this weekly? :o
