Putting your plant questions aside for the moment, I just thought you should 
know that the glass catfish is a schooling fish.  It will suffer unless you 
keep a minimum of 3 in the tank.  They are rather delicate fish also.  If 
you purchase some more (which you should do right away) I would purchase a 
few more than you need in case you have some die off while they are being 
quarantined.  They grow no larger than 5 to 6 inches, so don't worry about 
overcrowding your 20 gallon.
