I how many gallons is a 20in by 10in by 12in tank?

You see I have a tank that has Venus Fly Traps and a few other species of carnivorous plants in it and I want to get a feel for how much bigger a 30 gallon tank would be.

Any help would be extremly appreciated!

I kept a venus fly trap once, however, i kepT poking it.........then it died.

yeah, i think the number is like 10 or more times of being triggered without food and it starts messing up the plant....

Depends..
I dont feed mine because they get enough food from the food and water and also because if I give them a fly or ant it usually it kills the trap. My traps are big and red because of being so old. About an 1in per trap. If yall want another pic I will try to get 1.
