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:tongue: )

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...:icon_smil

Yay!! When I finish modding my filter I will post more photos but here's most recent! Hopefully tomorrow it will contain cholla and shrimpies!

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

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.

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...

Awesome looking tanks everyone! Keep them coming!

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.
