mainly i'm worried about how much it'll cost! i'm already going broke just buying fish and gravel. i would like a hood though - they look so much neater.
That is a standard 15/20 gallon, just make sure if you get a hood that it is the 24 inch length as a 20g comes in the long and the tall forms that are different.
An incandescent hood is much less expensive than fluorescent, and for this size tank like my 20g I prefer incandescent now that we have such fine CF bulbs that are also much cheaper to buy and operate (energy) than the others. Save up those pennies
. I just bought a hood for my 20g, after debating about a plain glass top and some sort of light fixture, but it was not much of a price difference in the end and now I have a nice looking and functional cover.
