Evolve2 (2G) desktop shrimp tank


I picked up a pair of 2G Aqueon Evolve2 for tanks for $12 each, so I thought I would play with them.

I started 1 walstad style with a layer of Miracle Grow Organic and a layer of $3/50lb play sand.

I then took a $7 packet of Dwarf Hairgrass, and split it into smaller chunks, and plugged it into the soil.

I added a single strand of Java Moss to keep an eye on it.

12 hours of light (on a timer) with the stock light.



In this shot, the tank is still only 75% full, as I am still grabbing floaters and plugging them in again.

You can see the java moss here -- and it's about doubled in length.

Nice start. I found my evolve4 cheap but not that cheap! great deals on these tanks out there! I'm interested to see if the stock light can really support the DHG, I replaced mine with a fluval 30w

Well, I have 2 of them, so I can put 2x the light on one tank, and if I need to, I can upgrade entirely.
