Evolve 8's are awesome, I have two of them. The one in my daughter's room has cherry shrimp, chili rasboras and otos. Plants are java fern, java moss, dwarf sag, and a nice crypt wendtii. They are thriving on the stock light and pool filter sand with Jobe's plant spikes buried in it. I stuffed the sump with bio media, and cut a piece of plastic needlepoint mesh to cover the skimmer intake and keep my shrimplets out. I just set up the second in my office today. Side note, I'm not sure why they are called Evolve 8 because once set up they barely hold 5gallons of water (I measured that today when I filled it up) and that includes what is in the filter. Have fun they are great little tanks for low tech!
