I've done it. I picked up the 8 gallon version shortly after they came out. I have a couple kinds of crypts, anubias, java ferns, and a whole mess of bolbitis. I will say, however, that the lighting...

Chocolate Gouramis. All of the chocolate gouramis. And some itty bitty rasboras. Maculatas, chilis, something along those lines.

You don't seem to have any cichlids yet. Perhaps an apistogramma, pelvicachromis, or ram species?
