Default The Trio of Evolve 8s. *Pictures*

I got the okay from my husband to use some of the tax money to set up a bada$$ nano. Buttt I can't decide between the Fluval Spec or Spec III or Spec V or some of the Aqueon Evolves. And petco is running a sale so I need to decide by this Thursday which one to get!

His only request is that it is neat and relatively self contained. And that it houses some "cool looking shrimp not just the plain ole red ones" Apparently he's bored with my PFRs haha

I would like to keep medium light plants and maybe at some point to make this high tech. I have not been able to find a definitive answer as to what the stock lights for any of the above tanks will be able to grow. I would like to keep this generally cost friendly and not have to invest money in other equipment, I understand that a lighting upgrade may have to happen though.

If I keep it budget friendly enough I might be able to pull off getting 2 tanks, as I have had to shut down my 10 gallon earlier this month and will have to shut down my 20H as soon as I get the nano.

So I need some serious help with what to buy!!!

Any input would be greatly appreciated.
