Turtle Tank for plants

Does any one use a 20L turtle tank to grow plants?

turtle or reptile tanks sometimes aren't meant to be filled to the top with water and will break under a full water load.

20g platy, , 2 x 10g shrimp, 3 x 20g shrimp, 7.5g shrimp and 1 great dane/mastiff puppy.

Dimensions wise, it makes sense though. Large surface area and shallow - great for a plant farm!
