I have a 20 gallon long with a Marineland 280 filter, glass top and gravel. No heater or light. It's an older tank that has been kept running but never used in over a year! The glass top is clouded and the plastic strip for the back has never been cut. There were some trumpet snails in it, but I have no idea if they are even still alive as I never 'feed' this tank anymore. No reason to. I could not see any glass scratches as it is filled with water and in my dark basement. There are some chips in the plastic frame and some scratches on the side trim-does not effect stability of tank. Pictures show this.
I will let this go for $25.00 if you're interested in it. I'm in Southbury.
If you need a light strip for it, I have an Oak 30'' all glass fluorescent strip I can sell you for $25.00 too. Let me know. Thanks.

By emptying it, do you mean remove the substrate?? If you want it out of the tank, that is not a problem. I could try and dry it out for you, depending on weather if you want to take it. Let me know.
I would clean the tank and filter and give you some new filter media to add-diy cut filter medias.

The tank has a glass cover. But as I stated, it is permanently clouded in areas and if you want to make it a planted tank, I would personally get a new one, although I think it would be fine for low light plants.
There is no light unless you would like to buy one from me for the amount I already stated.
I am busy this weekend, but should be free the next one. Please give this some thought to make sure it is something you want. It is a long ride to ask your parents to do as you mentioned.
When you make your decision let me know. Regards.
