Evolve 8 specs
I just picked one up today and, this is going too be fun. After having Aquariums all my life, Have always wanted to do a Nano plant tank and, It's my first. After getting it home, I wanting to find out just how much water can the Evolve 8 hold? Now one would think the Evolve 8 would be 8 gallon? well, when getting it out of the box and taking a good look, it just did not look that it could even hold close to 8 gallons.
So, this is what I did. With nothing in the tank, first started by checking how much the sump would hold. Adding water from 1 gallon water bottle the sump holds 1.50 or one and one half gallons, and then too the front aquarium itself.
I used the same 1 gallon water bottle and filled the aquarium to the top, it took 4.75 gallons.
So this is what it is: Aquarium 4.75
=6.25 total gallons
So what is the Evolve 8? it's a 4.75 gallon aquarium with added 1.50 sump.
