  1. Question for all you evo 2,4,and8 users

    I dont use mechanical filters, I do a .75 gallon water change every monday or tuesday. Ive never had a problem with amonia. Just make sure that your water and salt supply is not giving the amonia spikes. My 1st few tests I had some amonia but once I changed my salt supply it stoped.

  5. Question for Aqueon Evolve owners

    Ive been running my Evolve 2 for about a month and I usually add about 4-6oz's ever other day or so. I kept the stock pump it does just fine for my little tank. I love the simplicity of the tank. Very easy to maintain.
  6. I built this light about a year or so ago for my 5.5 gallon nano. I used it for about 5-6months then I had to leave the hobby for a while. It is very bright and works very well. I wanted to leave the housing mostly looking stock. It is equipped with 6-3w Cree LEDS, 3-RB and 3-CW. Its powered by http://www.mpja.com/prodinfo.asp?number=16001+PS and each color is controlled by http://www.ledsupply.com/03023-d-e-700p.php I am moving so I need to sell but please no low ballers. $125
  7. My Aqueon Evolve 4

    Any updates?
  8. evolve4 help

    Im running an Evolve 2, and I love it. Its probally a bit too small for most people but as busy as I am its perfect. The stock light will be fine for softies, shrooms or zoas. I have a dimmable par 38 pendant light on my but its overkill for such a small tank but its dimmed almost in half, I am running LPS and SPS coral . There are some great elvolve 4's on this site, good luck and keep us posted.

    Yeah since that pic was taken the light is about 12-14" about the tank, I wanted the most simple yet effictive look I could, plus for the price I couldnt pass it up. The arm that its on has the tightest bend it can make with the highest possible position. I also have it dimmed about 40-50% becuase it was making everything melt way. if you are going to run a par 38 on a small tank like this, make sure its dimmable. unless you want to hang your light off the ceiling.

    Yeah I replaced it with an Orphek Par 38 bulb with a dimmer. Its really bright and I dont want to burn the coral.

    I got some new coral from some LFS.I got a really nice piece of Green Birdnest and a small frag of Green Slimer Acro. Im thinking of a nice piece of pink or purple acro or some acans on the sandbed.What do you guys think and what would be a good addition to my tank?
