The "Official" Evolve-lution club, so lets see some Evolves!!!
This will be the "official" Evolve-lution club!!!!
Remember we are only a club, we do NOT seek compensation of any kind for this club. Rules for the club are simple, you must have a Evolve that's currently setup and running, or that will be set up and running soon. It doesn't matter what kind of Evolve you have, 2-4-8 gallon, doesn't matter if it's a planted tank, shrimp tank, or saltwater tank as long as you have an Evolve!!!!
Here's the club link, and banner for your signature on the PlantedTank.net
I hear ya, my Evolve 4 is a mess inside!!! I'm just using it as a holding tank for my betta, and my plants until I can get my 6 gallon topless fluval edge together then everything will moved into the edge. Then I can get the Evolve 4 situated as a shrimp tank!!!!
I don't quite know how powerful the stock light because I got my Evolve 4 from a local guy without the light. So I went with a 10" Finnex FugeRay, and now I'm waiting on my order of ADA aqua soil to come in.
What kinds of plants will grow properly with the included light?
I've heard that the stock light on this tank is considered "pretty good." From what I have found, you can do medium light plants, for sure. Maybe even some flexible high light plants. If you go to this thread: Show off your Evolve! you can get some ideas of the plants that grow in the tank. Most people on the thread are using stock lighting. I'm attempting some dwarf hairgrass. One person posted that with the evolve 8 lighting, it stays alive but won't propagate in her tank, so I'm trying it out.
My conclusion is that most plants that don't need extra CO2 should do okay with the stock lights.
