What are your photoperiod, substrate & fertilization? It looks like you've just got basic gravel(though that could be a cap) so I guess it needs nutrients. My dwarf sag has always gone crazy with...

That's a lot of caves for the 20 long, I may have to add more drift wood or see about hiding those little cave/hut things within the stems. My current layout has a line of small swords at an angle...

I've had luck with dwarf sag., MM, Crypt. parva(in a 20L, you'd need like 100 pots! Would be so badass!!!) so you can definitely do it!! I guess the scale of your scape would make a lot of difference...
