So I recently got rid of my goldfish and because of this I now have a 75 gallon tank with one one-year-old bristlenose pleco. I want to downsize as my tank pretty much looks empty without my goldie swimming around. I want to downsize to a 20 gallon so I could focus more on adding plants and driftwood (so expensive :0) but I had a couple questions:
1) Is this enough for a year or 2 until it gets bigger? (He/she's a little more than an inch or so right now)
2) Would it be overkill to keep my hydor external filter (professional 350 model) if I could do something to disrupt the flow so there isn't a crazy current around the tank? I just really like my filter idk
Thanks for the input, and if a 20 is too small, what size would you recommend?

1. I think it's enough, though they definitely don't grow that slowly lol
2. If you can baffle the flow a little bit, that should be just fine
