    Maddie's Evo Adventure

    So... This wasn't exactly planned, but now I have saltwater again! After about 3 years of being out of the hobby, I'm back. When a friend offered me his Evo 13.5 for 100 bucks fully set up I couldn't say no! It arrived tonight, with a minor gha infestation and looking kinda bad. The stock pump apparently kicked it unless I'm doing something wrong, and I also might have dropped the SG to 1.022 after it was at 1.029. Oops. So tomorrow it looks like I'll be running to the LFS to pick up a new pump and saltwater. Tank currently has an emerald crab, a hermit of some sort, a damsel of some sort and a rainsford goby which was looking bad when it got to my house. Also, a partially dead gorg and some snails. I put a maxijet 1200 on it for now (good grief, it's horribly noisy!).
  2. Yesterday night my clownfish started flashing. There was nothing visible on his skin. I gave him a freshwater dip. I just got home from work today and he’s got a big white something hanging off his face. It almost looks like some sand stuck by his mouth, but it’s definitely stuck on. Quick background on my tank, it’s new (like 2ish months) and all the fish are newish too. I added a cardinalfish a LFS. Then I added the clown who I got from divers den live aquaria. Then I added a second cardinal from a second LFS. I’ve added coral from local stores and that I’ve ordered online. I didn’t quarantine anyone (I know I know I should have). Both cardinalfish are looking and acting totally normal. I gave the clownfish a freshwater bath for 5 minutes last night. I know it was probably too little too late, but I wanted to do something. Nothing visible came off him. It’s my first tank and I didn’t quarantine because I don’t really have the space or money to set up a quarantine tank. WHERE DO I GO FROM HERE?? What’s the cheapest/easiest but still ethical way for me to fix my clown? Aldo let me know if you need any additional info from me.
  3. I ended up, on a whim, at my LFS and was shocked to find a little Green Mantis. I haven't had a tank since my daughter was born (she's 8), but I'm jumping back in for this guy with a Fluval Evo 13.5. I set up the tank on Sunday (March 31, 2019) and have live sand, chaeto, and Dr Tim's. I was going to add a firefish for cycling/movement but they ran out and I grabbed 2 Threadfin Cardinals instead (bad idea... too shy). Main question, how soon can I add my mantis? The LFS won't let me "hold" him, but insists no one else has been interested in him. I'm worried I just set everything up and he'll get snagged. He looks like a Veridis to me, anyone else have any thoughts on what he is? Excuse the bare tank... the rock will be here Friday. There is a full network of PVC tunnels under the sand for him though.

  8. So I have decided on keeping a fluval 13.5 as my first reef tank, I maintain one at my LFS I help out at, so im not completely new, and im curious about my stocking, I was thinking about keeping one clownfish (Ive heard this is ok) so my stock list will be below Equipment -Korelia 425gph powerhead -Hipargero 30W LED -InTank media basket running chemi-pure blue, sachem matrix (just because ill have a spare compartment) and poly filter pad. -Eheim Jäger 50w heater -ATO micro -5-10 Lbs of dry rock, how ever much fits my scape. -10 lbs of Fiji pink Arag-alive Corals (Just what im starting with) -Multiple types of leathers -Zoas -Hammer coral -Frogspawn -Kenya tree -Elegence (I know it might out grow my tank but I LOVE them) -Candy cane -GSP (separate rock) -Monti cap Fish & Inverts - 1-2 narssarius snails - 1-2 torchus snails - 1 Cleaner shrimp - 1 Occ. Clownfish - 1 Clowngoby - 1 neon goby or firefish Thoughts? Anything that should be changed, is there too much.
  9. Hey guys, just wondering if I could get some input on whether these kinds of snails would be a good start to my clean up crew? My tanks been cycling/going for around a month or two now, I see multiple Amphipoda crawling around constantly and I’m starting to get some algae growth. I’ve placed nothing in there except for a few zoa frags Would turbo snails, nassarius snails, and trochus snails be good for my tank? Note that I’m rural Australia and would have to drive a good 2-3hrs to get to a marine store and can’t find many good websites to order live stock thanks!
  10. I have a fluval evo 13.5 and it's running about 1.5 to 2.5 degrees Fahrenheit hotter than I'd like. And this is in the winter. I will probably be dealing with a good 3 to 4 degrees in the summer. I really, really don't want to buy a chiller....big money, no room to run lines, too cluttered, etc. I don't know of any fans that will fit on the tank without removing the covers. I was thinking that if i point the pump nozzle a little more upwards it may create a greater turbulence on the surface and chill. It creates a small turbulence at the moment. I also have an air driven skimmer, but it's not doing enough to cool the tank. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
  11. I have a evo 13.5 mixed reef. I just got a jabao sw 2 Wavemaker and I have been messing around with the modes. I have had nitrate build up so that is why I got the sw 2. I can not decide between w1 and else. Else is a little strong but it might work. What would you recommend for a mode in that size yank to reduce nutrient build up

    Removing evo stock pump

    Hi, first post! I’ve bought the sicce 1.0 pump for my evo 13.5 but can’t for the life of me figure out how to get the stock pump out. The suction pads are holding it right to the floor of the aquarium and I there is no easy way to generate enough force to break the suction. anyone managed to get the pump out? Any tips?!!
  13. I want to upgrade the stock pump on my fluval evo 13.5, but I would like to hear some pros and cons of the different options from actual owners. I recently purchased an Eheim Compact 1000 pump for this tank but I ended putting the stock pump back on due to high temps. My tank was reaching 87+ degrees F with the eheim whereas with the stock pump, i'm steady 80 degrees F. Eheim compact 1000: Pros: -smaller size than stock -260 GPH -no filter to clean Cons: -loud -5/8" non-barbed outlet (requires zip tie; fluval pump is 1/2" outlet) -heatsoaks the tank Some other names I hear about for this tank are Sicce 1.0 or 1.5, MJ1200, and Hydor 300. Do any of these options produce significant amounts of heat in the Evo 13.5? Not too concerned about the noise, but quiet is preferable.
