I added some Baby Tears(HG) and Rotala Colorata. My tank has finally finished cycling, but I think Im going to let it go another week before I add the super tigers to it. I haven't made any filter mods yet but plan to in the next week.

Hey Tracy,

Baby tears grow really well in my tank. It grew in super think. I hope you have the same success.

I would recommend making the filter mods before you add shrimp. You will have to lower the water level significantly in order to do the modifications. It will also have to be low for about three hours to ensure the epoxy cures. It will hold in about 30 seconds but needs to be cured well before immersed in water.

I will definitely do the filter mods before adding the shrimp. Do you think super glue gel will work instead of the epoxy?

It would hold probably hold if that's what your asking. But it wouldn't give you time to get everything positioned the way you want before it sets. Epoxy is only like 4 total at Walmart. Is go with epoxy if I had the choice.

Tank look good. Not sure if your looking for advice, but I would plant much more densely to avoid algae problem in the future.

Im always open for some advice, BBA has already started showing up on the hydrocotyle leaves... I want to plant some sort of crypt in the right corner and remove the hydrocotyle and plant some dwarf sag in the front. The dwarf sag I have stays really short so I'm not concerned about it growing taller than the driftwood.

Time for an update! Finally added the supertigers and 2 weeks later one of them is berried!! Also transfered Orange Neos from my 10 gallon to the Evolve, all of them are juveniles less than 1/2'' long. Here is a current full tank shot and some pics of its inhabitants I think I might switch out the crypt nurii(these probably need to go in a high tech tank) for some crypt wendti bronze.

Thanks! It is actually one of the slower growing mosses for me but I love how small it stays it just looks awesome. I been wanting to give it a trim and transfer the trimmings to my ten gallon since it is one of my favorite mosses.

In my evolve 8 I used stainless steel mesh with tiny openings and just used super glue gel. Worked like a charm!
