Advice needed on first setup


Hello, I'm new to the planted aquarium scene and would like to setup my first very soon. At first I was thinking of getting the Fluval Edge because of it's looks, but after reading the entire official Edge thread, I've been kinda put off by it. It seems that the tank is hard to maintain and on top of the stock light being weak the hood blocks it from reaching the edges of the tank. So I've been looking for an alternative. I'm hoping you guys could help me find a good choice. My ideal setup is something low maintenance with some low-mid light plants that are easy for a beginner to care of and I want around 10 Celestial Pearl Danios and some shrimp in the tank. My budget is ~$100 for the tank+lights+filter. I've found these but I'm completely open to suggestions.

I bought the fluval ebi shrimp tank for $100 on petco website. Its a pretty good deal for tank light filter and shrimp supplies and it got pretty good reviews. I don't think u could have so many fish though its only 8 gallons
