Personally, I dont think 45 lbs is too much for a 20 gallon. Sounds like a good filtration system to me.

Unless you're absolutely strapped for cash, in my opinion, you want to have a little extra rock when you're aquascaping anyway. That gives you more options as to how you arrange everything, and if one of the pieces of rock just doesn't want to "fit" anywhere you don't have to use it. You can always give the "leftovers" to your LFS, or break them up and use them as rubble in a filter.

I also agree that the 45 lbs would be best. Cant get no better bio filtration. Is it the fiji LR?

I`m not sure of that skimmer but Fiji is a little bit on the heavy side so I`m sure it will fit all in your tank.
