The rat chewed off the entire top plastic rim?! Or was it just part/all of the inner lip? Wether or not it has any of the plastic left, you could still use it for a viv. Check out the below threads about waterfalls, im sure there will be some info you could use. Pretty soon, I will be making a thread that describes, in detail, the waterfall Im making in my 80 gal viv. The best lighting for vivariums (if you want lots of plants) are power compacts. I think the difference between vivariums and terrariums is a vivarium houses plants and animals, and terrariums are just for plants. I could be wrong. Finally, no, 20 gallons is not too small for a vivarium. It just limits how many/what kind of animals you could comfortably house in it.
