First off all good job on giving sound advice here mark.

Actually we used to keep rosys in smaller tank than 20gallon with screen lids.But 20's won't hurt for larger female. a lot of us had the best success with the screen top and basic glass gallon type aquaria with watr offere sparingly with the exception of gravid female and neonates.

. All the oldies kept them this in tanks w/ screen lids. I kept kept a collection of over a hundred of rosys for over 30 years like this. Then so did Gary Keelser and today Jerry Hartly still does. Ventilation is important and rosys just don't do well with high humidity and rack systems. They also do better with bottom heat instead of heated rooms or back heat.
