At least you started with low light plants. The Lotus I found easy to grow plant. Just won't have bright colors with low light. You can train it to stay low by cutting all but 2 leaves. I think 2 conical reflectors would work on your tank.

Glad you decided on a 20 long instead of a 10 G. It is easier to scape and keep parameters balanced with a 20 G.

For a partitioner I read someone took the long items that binders slide in and glued them in the tank when it was empty. Then slid in xstitch sheet. Silicone for aquariums or super glue gel can be used. You have hardy fish thus you could put them in a bucket with the plants while doing this.

Perhaps on craigslist you could find a desk lamp the takes a flouresant bulb. Or save up and buy a T5NO light system.
