20g or under recommendations? (edited)!

Hi, I am moving and have to downsize my planted tank (IM SR80), but cannot be without a tank! I am thinking of the JBJ Cubey Nano 15, IM Fusion Nano 20. It has to fit on an existing stand which is 15.75" deep. I like the JBJ because I could add the stand in the future and it looks great. Also considered the Coralife Biocube 16g which has a stand but is too deep for my current location. Stands are always such a pain!

I want to do a few plants, maybe shrimp, a few tetras? and want clean look, lo tech, easy to maintain!

JBJ - 16.22x14.25x17.67- nice clean look, LED lights included, good pump and filter - not sure I can put lights on timer or slow dim? And does the lid open far enough for maintenance or remove?

IM Nuvo - 24x15x13, larger which is always better!? I could add whatever I want for lights, only has a screen top, good pump and filters, nice and long but too shallow?

Any help or comments please! I am stuck!!!! Should I post this in equipment?

I like the IM Fusion tanks. I have the 10 gal and love it. Thinking of upgrading to the 25 lagoon after I move. Whatever you get I'm sure you'll make a great tank with it. Good Luck and post pics
