12. Okay, so here I am with a 20g High, I have black etes gravel as my substrate, and heres my question. Before I add any specimen into the tank, I want the tank to be fully develope with lots of plants growing. I want to know how to keep my plants alive and growing so that the tank doesn't look ugly. Becuase all of the plants that I've bought and kept only last a few weeks and then turned brown and died.

With that much light over the tank, I'd say you definately have to get some CO2 going as well as start fertilizing.

Your plants are trying to grow like crazy under that lighting but "burn out" because there's no ferts to sustain that rate of growth.
