I'm breaking down my 5 gallon office tank and will be upgrading to a 8Gal Aqueon Evolve.
Using this post as a setup journal.
Here's the equipment so far:
Aqueon Evolve 8G

3x Fluval 13w CFL
- Layer 1 -
API - Pure Laterite
Osmocote Plus spread + DIY capsules
- Layer 2 -
20lbs bag of Black Eco-Complete Substrate

5lbs Petco Black Sand
- Top Decor -
1x M Manzanita Driftwood
1x XS Malaysian Driftwood
Several Riverstones (white and rust colored, striped - don't know the real name for it)
[Not too sure if I should transfer the fish or trade it in with my LFS so I can get some other fish but here's what I have]
6x Flame Tetras (didn't want these, rather have rasboras)
1x Honey Gourami (Yellow + Red in color)
2x Otocinclus Affinis (Need 1 more)
2x Snail I cannot Identify

Ferts and Dosing:

SeaChem Excel [paintball pressurized Co2 after I get my equipment] For now I think Excel will do nicely until I can get the tank more established.
No Pictures now, But I will when tomorrow comes around
Let me know what you think of the setup.
