Start with the articles on ceph care (Articles link at the top of all pages). Nancy and Colin has put together a book that will also be helpful to understand the care and keeping requirements for a ceph. Once you are armed with some of the care information, cruise the journals for the different animals that are available and read about their behaviors.

A 20 gallon aquarium is only acceptable for a dwarf species. After you have read through the articles, there is a lot of aquarium specification for various set-ups in the Tank Talk forum but the basic care articles will give you a good starting ballpark.
