That is most certainly not the attitude of a reefkeeper bound for success. If you are not willing to upgrade to the proper equipment, perhaps you may want to reconsider attempting a Fish-only setup. A small reef will be extremely difficult to maintain without the proper equipment and experience. I would recommend you consider getting, at the very least, a 29 gallon tank, make your 20g into the sump, and invest in the overflow, and maybe a coralife superskimmer 75. That coupled with a bare minimum of 130 watts of PC lighting would be enough to get you started with a small soft coral dominated reef.
