Show off your Evolve!

I see that more and more people are getting Aqueon Evolves and there isn't a dedicated thread to them yet...until now! So show off your Evolve 2, 4, or 8.

I'll start off.... this is my Evolve 8, home to SuperTiger Shrimp.

i just got the moss ball from am ember here, and plan on finding something to fill out the back left and middle.. the "onion" plants i have in there aren't gonna last i don't think. thinking of some ludwegia or something.

i've modified the pump to be under the filter box with an extended hose and then put 500g of bio blocks on a stand in the sump. also added a purigen pad, but it probably isn't really needed. (for the matter, 500g of bio blocks probably was not needed )

This is my newest tank - it's the Evolve4. It will be completely re-scaped next Friday, along with the other three freshwater planted tanks in the house.



I had to baffle the outflow on the filter, even when it was on the lowest setting. I bet hundreds of bettas live in these, but the filter wasn't really designed for a betta.

I'll take Lucky out when I do it - this tank is too small to completely redo with him in there.

Buckets of driftwood all over the house, soaking in hopes of sinking.

If not, then I have rocks...

Here's my Evolve4... no critters in there yet, it's still cycling. Have added frogbit and some small cryptocoryne spiralis since this photo.

Evolve 2 Cherry Shrimp Tank

Long shot of my Evolve 2. I will post a closeup in a day or two. Currently housing about 20 CRS. All seem to be doing fine and have been in tank for about a month.

Thanks!


The crypts up front are wendtii green, mid are wendtii red and in the back are a mix of bacopa and ludwigia.

Updated photo of mine with the forest of floater roots. Rps3287, I like how you set up that extra light. I have a desk lamp, but it won't sit nicely like yours... it leans forward. Currently I have it next to the tank, but I'd rather have it coming down from above. I wish the stock light was bright enough, but my pellia is having an issue and doesn't look very good. I'm assuming it may be light-related...

I am getting mine setup this week, here is a pic of my modded pump. Anyone have any thoughts or concerns? The reason behind this is it will be the home for a betta.
