I say wait for the finnex 24/7. I'm a finnex fan, but you can dim the current. I use the planted plus on my 15g which is a 20 inch I had on my 10g. I use co2 and dose ei. Hope that helps.

Updated my tank. Decided to open up some area. Still on the hunt for a schooling fish. I have some but still not happy. Love my Bolivian rams though.
