I want clams too but I'm worried they'd just die. I think they're hard to feed.
A regular T8 fluorescent bulb, the kind that comes with Aqueon's deluxe hood or light strip, is considered low light to medium light. A T5 light, which is a lot skinnier but costs a lot more, is considered high light. Incandescent light (what comes with Aqueon's economy hoods) is considered worthless.
Arowanas really are cool but I'd be afraid of it jumping out. They're supposed to be really, really good and really strong jumpers.
Plans for the 20gal
A) get rid of all the fish and start again but try to salvage the plants
1 raphael catfish because it loves snails and I'd only need one instead of several like with loaches
1 siamese algae eater for the algae
2 dwarf cichlids of some sort (possibly apistogramma borelli)
5-8 hatchetfish for the top
B) get rid of all the fish AND plants
2 convict cichlids
2 buffalohead cichlids
