Finally managed to get something rolling on this one. Got a large plastic tub, the largest that my local shops could offer. According to my calculations it would be roughly about 15 gallons, but it is wider than tall and the better for plants because diffused sunlight will be able to penetrate better. For the substrate which is about 3'' thick, I have added a bottom layer of river gravel, followed by a middle layer of potting soil and a top layer of the same river gravel again, the gravel is about 3-6mm and I hope will be suitable for the plants. Water was filled to the brim and it is slightly murky as of now, will allow a couple of days for the water to settle.
