I bought a 10x8x8 tank yesterday it holds around 12 liters I am unsure what to do with it I was going to use it for raising fry but the angels are being aggressive to each other so I was planing to do a high tech planted setup with a few shrimp maybe?What do you thing?

The general recommendation is a minimum 10 x flow for planted, so for your 12 litres, aim for at least 120lph. I run an external eheim, and I think eden 501's are well thought of.

A HOB isn't such a good idea if you're using pressurised CO2 because it drives it off. But it works alright if you're using easy carbo or excel (liquid carbon supplements). I'm pretty happy with my HOB, but I'm using easy carbo.
