Found out that Aqueon will send you a new light if you let them know that the original one burned out in less than a year.

Good to know! I'm loving the evolve 8 so far. Can't wait to get it planted.

I suffer from MTS...and enjoy every minute

My Evolve 8 Planted FW

Here are a couple of shots of my month old Evolve 8 FW Planted tank.
One shows the overall tank and the other my German Rams
No CO2 but daily dosing of Excel and Envy. Plus as of 2 days ago Flourish tabs in substrate.
Forgive pictures if they dont display well on your screen as taken with my phone,

Finally adding a picture of my Evolve 4. Scaped entirely with trimmings from my larger tank, so it took awhile. Anacharis, crypt wendtii, bacopa monnieri, and a moss ball. I dose flourish comp once a week and a drop of excel once or twice a week. Right now it houses pond snails and a single platy fry I rescued from its parents, but I'm ordering some rili shrimp tomorrow!

Mind made up. I must get one of these tanks and become part of the Evolve "nano" club. Especially LOVE the blue rams in rbtmccord's tank. They are a really fun fish. What size tank to get tho... Hmm....

Just picked up an evolve 4 for $41 and an 8 for $56 at PetSmart on clearance. Midnight floramax was on clearance to. I got carried away and got the plants, although I haven't picked out a hard scape yet. You actually get a nice quantity of plants in each one of those baggies. Gonna have to figure out what to do with the leftovers, but for now, they will just chill in the tank.
Here's the 8 w/my plant selection.

Ha. Like someone else said: stupid iPad with sideways pics!

Ok, so I have an evolve two. Nd I'm having some issues with it. I love the design and shape, but I have a few questions. By light burn out you mean it won't turn n or the the brightness has faded, I swore my light was much bright when I first purchased it, now its kinda dull. Wich bring me to my next question what else could I use for lighting that is a clip in light that has medium light output for a evolve two?

Also I scrapped the filter for a tetra air driven one, both filter suck, so I'm thinking about taking out the wall that seperate for filtration and using a hob, how can I achieve this? It seems as though the filtration takes p a good portion of the tank and has a lot of dead space that could be used for the actual fish. Right now I have a beta an Otto and 4 amano shrimp. Tis is my daughters tank, and her beta name is baboo. Ay suggestions guys?

must....have.....more....moss n shrimp!!!!!!!!!!
