20BI is enough I guess.
Of course it depends a lot of your winrate (and playstyle), but with 11 buy-ins and 10% ROI (which should be somewhat easy at micro-SNGs) the risk of ruin is almost non-existant.

If your ROI is more like 3-5%, then also the risk of ruin is obv much higher. If you are interested in those "busto risk" calculations, you can find the formulas to calculate them from 2p2.

I was watching some HUSNG videos and the guy coaching them says that with his small ball style, you should easily be able to have a 15 - 20% ROI in the regular speed formats at the micro stakes.

He also did a mini bankroll building series where he started playing the $2 games with a $50 deposit and rolled it to $500 never playing higher than the $10 games.

So 20 buyins would be more than enough.

Yes, 20 is fine. I would not say "plenty" though, as there is still a significant RoR for decent players.

30 should be enough for someone recently moving up to a stake (ie. taking a shot at 50s or 100s with 30 BIs), although less is definitely possible also.
