    i just got a 20g long the other day to start a new planted tank. But I got one of those aqueon quiet flow 20 hobs. Is this an okay filter? Also what would be a good 30" light for plants that won't break the bank? :)

    I'm thinking about Scarlett badis for this tank. Would they be good tank mates with pygmy corys? I have a few pygmys in with my betta and they are always active. So fun to watch them.

    The filter should be fine. I would look up Aquarium co-op's filter videos. Cory goes into detail on how to keep them up and how to improve them.

    The light can be anything that outputs light. If you see a 30 inch light at Home Depot or Lowe's it'll work fine. Or if you like the hanging spotlight effect, that would work too.

    i have an aqueon 30 on my 20 long and i have never had issues with it, i love mine.
    look at how much replacement bulbs are when light shopping, it will come in handy in the future! i just use the aqueon 30 inch strip light with a daylight bulb, i dont know have live plants though. they have bulbs specifically for plants and they are not too expensive and easy to find.
