I saw that your media basket for the Fluval Evo is coming. Just wondering if it is going into the first or second chamber? Does it go all the way down?

We may do both but the one we are working on now goes in chamber one.  Yes it goes all the way down.  It will have a notch to clear the stopper piece in Ch 1

Dang it I was hoping you would do the 2nd chamber one first coz I'm planning on putting my skimmer in chamber 1. The stopper piece keeps the skimmer at the perfect level.

 

Guess I'll have to make do with an eggcrate one until you come up with a 2nd chamber rack!

The skimmer they sell is junk there are much better options that fit in Ch 2. Plus a basket in Ch 1 keeps the rear chamber cleaner.

But we will also be looking at chamber 2 options.

Just back in the hobby purchased evo 13.5. Waiting on media basket for it and have to agree the skimmer is junk I pulled it out yesterday. Any suggestions for chamber 2 skimmer. I was looking at the innovative marine line.

We will be doing some dry testing once the basket is done but on another thread the meme was talked about.  The Reef Octopus NS-80 may also fit.

 

Or go without, it's only a 12 gallon tank without any stocking

I have the best skimmer in my evo 13.5.  I only have to run it once a week too.  Looks something like this:

Silly question...  Will the basket you guys are planning also fit into the Flex series too?

Never seen the tank.  If it is a similar size then it is likely they use the same baffles.

The Innovative Marine Ghost Desktop fits perfectly in the second chamber, and while I think it under performs in larger IM tanks, it seems perfect for my EVO 13.5. Glad that inTank is designing a media basket for the first chamber, I agree that the second chamber is the most protein skimmer friendly. The first chamber also seems to be the most refugium friendly, plan on keeping chaeto in the upper inTank slot.
