Looks good so far. Nice rocks. I really like the ones on the left side. Did you collect them yourself?

Well l got a 2213 on my 7.5 so something bigger will do. 2213 is perfect for my nano maybe a bit strong but you can always tone it down with the double taps.

Updates I guess! Better camera pics too!

Got some S.Repens and I love em! Put the in right side of my tank. I'm gonna let them get a litte taller! Maybe like 2 inches or so.

And my carpet is going pretty good! Algae is on glass only but thats because I leave the lights on too long! Whoops!

At least you dont have to worry about run out of shrimp food! haha..jk. I would set up a 20L right away without second thought, only if I had a table that large enough to keep one.

I've got an Eheim 2211 on my 20L and it seems to get the job done. You can get one for a reasonable price on Amazon.
