its a good start, once it gets huge you may need something wider though

a 20 gallon isn't 12" wide? I wouldnt know I have a 20 gallon long. I believe it is just as wide as a 29 and as long but not as high.

20 gallon 'high' / 80 liter: 24 1/4 inch by 12 1/2 inch by 16 3/4 inches high

20 gallon 'long' / 80 liter: 30 1/4 inch by 12 1/2 inch by 12 3/4 inches high

29 gallon 'show' or 'high' / 120 liter: 30 1/4 inch by 12 1/2 inch by 18 3/4 inches high

if you are keeping just one piranha in that 20 gal , it might be ok , but you should get a bigger one , don't put more than one in the 20 gal with it!!!

it's good for awhile but if you want your fish to be more active you might want to get the tank a little bit bigger after awhile.....
