Here's a tank I just recently set up for my sister.
It was cycling with nothing in it for a week or so before I added some plants. Hopefully the diatoms start to clear up soon. I'm planning to change up the plants and scape and eventually get it low maintenance/low light. Progress on it is hampered by having to bring out the bucket and siphon whenever I want to stick my hands in to change something, so most of the time I put it off.
