First planted tank!

Hey all, new to the forums and I figured I'd start from the beginning!

I was wondering if you guys could help me chose a tank to start my planted tank journey! It won't be anything major, but I'd like to do something in the range of 4-8 gallons! I'd like to spend around $75 on the tank itself! I've been looking at a few like the Aqueon Evolve, Fluval Spec V, and the Aquastyle (but haven't found any around my price!).

Does anyone have any suggestions on what tank might work best? I also have a 13w fluval flora light that I can use in addition to the stock lighting!

Thanks so much for your help!!

Do you have any preferences in tanks? What would be better? The Fluval spec v, Aqueon Evolve 4, or any preferences at all? Just sort of curious as to what people think!
