As an environmentalist and student of economics, I believe everyone should buy LEDs. But if you're just worried about having ENOUGH light, you're probably fine.

I think that's a few too many species for a 20 gallon. It'll look a quite messy: that much plant variety will look too chaotic for the eye to make sense of. It won't even be messy in a natural...

It's a bit late in the season, so I'm just going to stick with leafy greens (kale, chard, watercress) and maybe some snap peas. Next season I'll plant some heirloom tomatoes.
