|CatFishStryk||The filter is really strong; I kept the original filter, packed it in foam, baffled the outflow with some thin filter foam and a rubber band, dumped a bunch of biomax throughout the sump, and cut to fit some coarse foam to put between the filter side of the sump and the pump side. I don't even use carbon in mine. My betta and shrimpies are doing just splendid!|

|retrocity||Is anybody using additional filtration on their Evolves? I am about to start setting up an 8, and saw the Zoomed 501 Nano is only $28 at my local Petco. I thought it may be a good idea. Any thoughts?|

Here's the newest pictures of my tank!!! I'm almost done planting this tank just waiting for a shipment of Lilaeopsis sp. to replace the dwarf hairgrass, then the only thing left is to get a co2 injection system.

|mosspearl||I wasn't happy with the amount of light with my Evolve4... I wanted a heavily planted tank. I went with a daylight CFL in a desk lamp over the tank. Later, when I got an Evolve8 and changed my 4 over to a shrimp tank, it contained mostly mosses, so I used the light from the 8 on it. It does fine with the moss. I assume the light that came with the 4 would also do fine for moss. I do like the whiteness of the LEDs, but it just didn't seem enough for the plants I initially put in.|

a question about lighting
Sorry to tangent slightly in here...
But does the light that comes with the Evolve 4 really support freshwater plant growth? If so would it be considered low or medium light?

My two week old evolve4
13w fluval light, modified 20g co2, black petco sand, root tabs made by local hobbyist, and ac30 sponge as prefilter for when shrimp move in.

|mosspearl||It's resolved itself, Luminescent. I think it was something with the pump.|

Is the 'tapping' three times in a row usually?

My Evolve 4. I'm still stocking it and figuring out what other plants I want to use and where, but it's pretty close to being done.

|mosspearl||But your betta looks very happy. Nice scape.|

I am picking up an Evolve 8 tomorrow.
FYI, Petsmart friends and family starts tomorrow, so you can get an additional 15% off if you are thinking of buying an Evolve.
edit - picked it up today. Was able to use a $5 off $25 coupon (and a dog birthday coupon for a free treat!) along with the 15%, so out the door at about $33 after tax along with a bag of treats.
I will be replacing my 5g Eclipse with this.
I am assuming dwarf hairgrass is out of the question with the current light? Has anybody had success with staurogyne repens?
