Bageezus's Planted Aqueon Evolve 8

Okay so I decided to get into planted tanks. I still have a few freshwater tanks sitting around and finally just got the itch to start up a new tank. I went with a Aqueon Evolve 8 that I got from a friend.

Equipment list

Lighting : Kessil A80 Tuna Sun with Kessil Goose Neck

I placed Flourish tabs in the soil and use Flourish Trace and Excel. I run around 2bps and have had a ton of growth already.
