Evolve 4 with Aquaclear 50 sized filter media...
So after setting up my 30 gal at home with an Aquaclear 50, I took a closer look at the media chamber for the Aquaclear and the Evolve, and noticed they are almost the same size.
So I went to Petco today and picked up 2 sponges and the carbon insert. They did not have the biomax rings, which is why I picked up an extra sponge.
I also picked up this Fluval Nano black sponge that fits perfectly over the intake.
I stuffed the first sponge down to the bottom. Then the carbon bag on top of that. If I had the biomax rings I would have put that next, which would have put it at the water level. Instead I used another sponge. I also have the Nano Sponge placed infront of the intake.
As per standard Evolves, the water goes into the intake area into the media, then there is a spill way on top into the pump chamber.
Anyone have any thoughts? Should this setup be good? I am going to order the biomax rings online and replace the second sponge with that.
I did a 50% water change at the same time. Should I have any worries about my existing cycle? Which I still am not sure has even completed.
