My Evolve4 Journal

Just got this tank started and seeded with bacteria from my other tanks.

Tank - Aqueon Evolve4
Lighting - Stock currently (Fluval 13w cf arrives tomorrow)
Heating/Cooling - none currently (will be adding a 7.5w heater and a temp controlled pc fan for cooling)
Substrate - Petco black sand
CO2 - Modified Fluval 20g (Paintball set up arrives tomorrow with light)

Plants (don't know the names of all of them)
Dwarf Hairgrass
Rotala Macrandra
Nesea Red
Tropical Hornwart

Black Star Rock

Critters (Fish going in first; invert in a month or so)
Ember Tetras
Pygmy Cories
Shrimp (debating on which species still but will be a caridina and a neo species)
Varied Nerite Snails

Sorry for the haze just added hardscape today. (Tried to clear it up with Clarity but that just made it worse)

Looking good so far! Here's my Evolve 4 journal - Here's my Aqueon Evolve 4 journal!!!

I just got done rescaping the entire tank, now just waiting for my water to clear up. Plus I ordered another 10" Finnex FugeRay LED for my tank, and ordered quite a bit of new plants.

45g Long - High Light Planted Tank / 30g - Plant Grow Out Tank / 100g Tank - currently resealing

Looks great!

I love the pic of the fish peeking out from between the plants. :-)
