I would say make the 55 gallon a Saltwater and sell the 20gallon ...Get a 55 gallon or bigger and put some Africans in it. i have a question 690297

I vote move what you have in the 20g to the 55g and go from there... Possibly a community setup

id say go salt, it is much easier for salt to be in a 55 than a 20. the water stays way more stable, thats why you see such large reef tanks so often, the bigger the tank, the mores stable the tank will be which means the less amount of amonia spikes etc. if you do decide to go salt, i would not start with anything under a 50 and i recommend longer/wider than tall due to the large surface area which make a difference in salt

I agree anything under 55G for salt is going to be a pain in the @$$
