Default Inspire's Sister Tank

So some of you are familiar with my current build/tanks that I've got going on. One of the, Inspire (link here), did exactly what it was built to do. My girlfriend finally got bit by the bug and rather than complaining about a LFS visit has embraced it and has been contemplating a tank. She's waiting till one of her roommates moves out, but is interested in getting a little tank to feed her inner creativity. Because of this I've located a local deal on a Mini M with a Solar Mini that I'm picking up for her this weekend. I'm trying to figure out exactly what to give her with it to start her out. She mentioned before that she didn't want me buying her a tank, so I've already broken that promise. Figure I can give her the tank, light, some substrate and let her figure out the rest when she has an idea of what she wants.

I've got a pile of plants and I'm not sure what to start her out with. I jump in way too deep when it comes to tank projects and I'm not sure as of yet if I will be starting her out with CO2 or not. Thoughts?

I would start her off with a low tech tank, see how much she enjoys it. You can always upgrade the set up. Just my thoughts.

That's the plan j-pond. After looking at some fish for my other Mini-M she kept picking out larger fish (like mollies and other mid sized live bearers) than what the Mini-M could house. Dug up one of my 20's and a stand and plan to start her out with that

Sounds like a great plan, and from what I have seen here, the work you do with the tanks....WOW, can't wait to see how it turns out.

Thanks! More of a compliment than I deserve, really. I do appreciate it though.

I'm not sure how intense her setup will be. I'm not sure whether or not I can get her to get a canister filter (she's adamant she wants to be responsible for buying stuff for her tank since I'm giving her a tank and stand.) That said, then we have to discuss substrate, lighting and CO2 (liquid, DIY or injected.) Injected I believe is out of the option, I'm trying to keep her costs minimal and her overall work no more than moderate.
