bowing is the act of something bending under extreme weight. when you fill a tank with water, the longer front and back sides will want to bend outwards from the weight of the water pushing against the glass...its more obvious on the longer tanks but still happens to every tank.

and yes one ph is sufficient turnover for your 20g

id use a piece of string..line it up to the front most edge and tape it on the side..then pull tight across the tank and line up with the frontmost edge on the opposite side and tape...then look at the middle to see if the tank is bowing outwards
