If you want a "plug and play", I would go with the Aquastyle 6. I am having luck growing pretty much whatever I put in there. Good light, good filter, beautiful glass tank.
I second this!

I personally have a Evolve 8...which I had full of hemianthus micranthemoides. But I had to swap out the useless stock light to grow anything. I also find the sump area a waste of space and not very intelligently laid out. Furthermore, the outlet for the waterpump/sump is not very adjustable and quite focused. The pump is overpowered as well. And and and lol its acrylic so prone to scratching. OH and my lid has hazed from the heat of the more powerful light. Seriously, it basically sucks lol

The gf just bought an aquastyle 9. The light is very very bright, the filter works very very well and is sized perfectly for the tank, flow wise. It also has a secure compartment inside for housing media of your choice. Nice thick solid glass and no wasted space for a sump! I personally prefer this to the evolve without a doubt.
