So I decided this weekend that I needed a new tank. The wife is out of the house all weekend with her friends so it's my prime opportunity.

I've been eyeing the Aqueon Evolve series ever since it came out. I've heard good things about it as well so I figured I would try one out for myself. They were all on sale at Petsmart so I snagged the 4G version for $64 after tax (which I don't think is too bad really).

Substrate is Blasting Sand from Menards. Stuff looks real nice actually. Stock light, which is actually pretty bright and also has 2 LEDs for moonlight effect.

Plants are Green Cabomba, Anubias Nana Petite, Mini Xmas Moss tied to the rocks in front, and Salvinia.

I plan on housing Pumpkin Shrimp in the tank. I'm a little worried that the temp is too high, as it's 84˚ without a heater. I'm probably going to have to look into getting a small fan for it.
