I also have an 8 gal system that I started about a month ago. Filtration for small tanks are really difficult to find. I have an AquaClear 20 in mine and it is doing the job, but I was considering the ZooMed 501 but could not find one in the several stores I go to. Maybe I will convert to the 501 later and place the spraybar just about 1 " above the substrate to lessen the surface agitation which causes loss of CO2. Another trick would be to make the bars holes one drill size or two larger which will allow the water to flow out at less force but still the same GPH.
The driftwood I can not comment on, the picture tells all!!!
