8g evolve

This is my first thread here. I bought my son an Aqueon Evolve 8 in hopes of another reef setup, but needless to say, he wanted a planted tank. After some research I went out and dug up a bucket of dirt, mixed it with sand and put a 1/2-1" cap on top. I soaked the driftwood for 2 days. This is the tank so far.

Very nice. I'm so tempted to get one of these for a shrimp tank... .

Very nice.

A small suggestion: replace the light colored rock on the left with a smaller rock.

I don't know why - I just thought that when I looked at the tank
