If your tank is 20 inches in length, it is likely a 10 gallon. And with an incandescant (screw-in bulb type) lighting fixture. I have this over my 10g and 20g, and I use two GE 10w Daylight 6500K CFL bulbs.
I meant 20 inches in height 24 in lenght and 12 in width. Sorry, should of made that clear.
So I'll use it as a foreground, and we'll see what else happens.
Now I'm wondering what an all red tank would look like. . .
