The filter was the one on the side of my 10 gallon tank that was turned into a grow out tank. Since I'm just using a sponge filter in that tank this one was sitting unused- the baffle on the filter is just a cut soda bottle.
I put the wood & bungee cords on it to help reinforce the plastic. The bin wasn't showing any strain but I wanted to be on the safe side. Those pieces were in the garage.
The log centerpiece is a simple one you can find at Wal Mart that I wasn't using so it was perfect for this container.
The plants on the side- a bit of pothos in the front left corner and lucky bamboo along the side. Bamboo can't be submerged in a healthy manner so I just used clear suction cups with "clips" made into them to grasp the plants into place. Those were another "junk" item I had stashed away here.
Pretty simple and basic but it serves its purpose.
I do have the lid for the bin- if Im going to be gone I can place it over the setup (minus the filter) in order to keep an accident from happening if one were to decide to jump. I have yet to see that type of behavior- but who knows.

I'm not sure how much water it holds, but it measures 22" long, 12" wide and 11" tall.

Anyway, I know 20 isn't enough for them but they're the fish from another thread I have in this forum- they absolutely came from crap and have slowly worked their way into this setup.
I used their existing water to get this tank started and then had to add new to fill it the rest of the way. I had a major spill when I moved the container they just upgraded from- yikes! I'm not always very graceful but I do own a carpet steam cleaner, and they had a very recent water change so I'm not overly upset about it.
Im sure there is more I can do to their tank yet but this is what I have. As for the 20 long, it just didn't fit where I had envisioned putting it which is an aggrivation so I'm waiting that one out until I figure out where/what to do with it.
