I think your problem is in the lighting although I'm definitely not even close to being an expert. 20 watts over a 33 gallon just isn't going to grow anything. What I would do is just get a glass canopy and a standard home depot light fixture which you would hang over the tank. Then, just get some good plant bulbs (I would aim for 2-3 watts per gallon and if you can't find that in a one bulb fixture, then get 2 or 3). And I agree with what has been said about the 80 gallon tank. It will cost you a lot, so get it sorted out first in the 33, then aim for the 80.
20 gallon long: 3 adult Neolamprologus similis + about 11 fry of various ages; low light planted tank
20 gallon long:2 freshwater dwarf puffers (Puff Puff and Poofer); medium-light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Wormy; low light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Dante; low light planted tank
2, 5.5 gallon tanks that are currently empty (I see more fish on the horizon )
Would it Hurt?
Because for NOW I only have the 20 watt tank light (On the hunt for higher wattage) Would it hurt my fish to leave the light on for longer. I know I would have to turn it off at night for a couple hours for my plecos to come out and get their veggie wafers but is it ok?
