    Fluval Evo 13.5 Owners Thread

    I do not know if there is a definitive thread for all Fluval Evo 13.5 owners but if there is not, I am starting this one! The thread will ultimately serve as a learning resource for any and all reefers who own this particular AIO. Feel free to post any photographs, advice, do's, and most importantly do not's of your tanks. I look forward to making this a friendly and helpful resource for all Fluval Evo 13.5 owners. If there already are threads trying to accomplish this, please link this thread to them so that it can be consolidated to avoid redundancy. Redundancy is so annoying. I really hope you guys run with this!!
  4. Background: This is an upgrade from my Fluval Spec V. I have always struggled with the rock being too big in the Fluval Spec V. It makes it very hard to clean the glass on each side so lots of algae build up. I also wanted to get a bigger tnak for the clown fish. This clown fish has been with me for over 2 years now and survived through 2 leaks, 1 move, and other mishaps. It is also a total bully so I can't put it into my Red Sea Reefer 350. When I first saw ReefBuilder feature the Fluval Evo 12, I knew it will be my next tank. The dimension fits perfectly wherethe Spec V is now and the rock will look great with more space on each side. There are some questionable design choices with the tank such as the black honeycomb at the top of the tank (which I razored off) and the AIO chamber allows a lot of detritus to build up in the first and second chamber. The stock lighting and pump are good only for softies and low light LPS. But overall, the tank itself is pretty decent for the price. I do like it comes with surface skimmer and the return nozzle is already split into two. In additional, the raised design is very modern. My vision for this tank is a very natural tank with gorgonians, LPS, zoas, acans, and ricordeas. I will get another fish or two, something that can put up with the clown.

    💦 Ev's Evo 13.5 🐠

    Hi! So - back in 2015 I had a 45g tank but being in high school it ended up being way too much for me and I broke it down before I left for college. Fast forward to a few weeks ago - I somehow end up back on this forum and before I know it I have a new Evo at my door, Amazon Prime is a blessing and a curse. As I learned with my last go at this - I suck at tank maintenance AND keeping a journal, hopefully gonna stick with posting this time and in turn it will keep me from slackin on my tank, we'll see 😛 So here goes 🙂 6/26/19 - Day 0! - Cloudy! - Dosed Dr. Tims One & Only and ammonium chloride to 3ppm. 6/29/19 - Day 3 - Water finally starting to clear up. - Ammonia reading 1.5ppm
  8. Got a few pics of my tank running the hydra26 and also glued my new WWC frags on the rocks.
  9. To those of you who have a MAME design skimmer, could you post a picture of how you have it set up? Specifically, how deep into the water do you place it and how high up do you have the bubbles go? I know it is working for me since I have green water that comes out, but sometimes it works awesomely (like very dark green water) and other times it doesn’t work as well. Im under the impression that I need an ATO to get the best use out of it, but until I get one, could you guys share with me the ideal placement for it? Additionally, do you find it to be super wobbly? I’m not sure if there’s a better way to set it up, since the instructions were all in Japanese.
  10. This live sale was brutal and things sold in seconds...... I did manage to get 3 frags but the $5 ones disappeared super quick. Hopefully these corals will do good in my evo, I already have a birdsnest that’s doing good.
  11. Anyone have suggestions on hydra 26 settings over a fluval evo 13.5

    Isaac's Peninsula Reef

    Welcome to my journey! I decided to get back into the reefing hobby, Im a bit late to post on the forum, but my tank is already up and running! I add corals every week, and post updates. I Hope you enjoy, my little piece of the ocean 🙂 Tank: Fluval Evo 13.5 Gallon Equipment: Aqua Illumination Prime HD Jebao OW-10 on the W2 Sine Settings, third speed (a little less than 400GPH) InTank Media Basket (Chamber One) -> Filter Floss -> Chemipure Blue -> Marine Pure Eheim Heater Stock Return Pump Live Rock / Real Reef Rock Aqua Forest Reef Salt Aqua Forest Pro Bio F Aqua Forest Bio S Live Stock: Bullet Hole Clownfish (Drogon) Black Ice Clownfish ( Rhegal) Bubble Tip Anemone Scarlet Skunk Cleaner Shrimp (Tyrion... because he cleans up everyones mess 😛 ) Blue Leg Hermit Crabs Red Stripe Snails Coral: Sunny D Zoa Nebula Zoa Eagle Eye Zoa Holy Grail Torch (QT) Gold Aussie Torch (QT) Bonsai Acropora (QT) Maintenance: I do daily water changes of about 1-2 Liters of water, and have found that my fish and coral love it, my clowns have already laid the first clutch of eggs, so things are working out:)! I feed a variety of food, PE Mysis, LRF Nano, and New Life Spectrum. They get fed the NLS Pellets in the morning, the PE Mysis in the afternoon, and at night the get Reef Frenzy Nano I just did a water change so I will post photos in a couple hours! 🙂
  13. Need some options on of this looks safe mounted on my glass. I ended up buying a hydra26 today because apparently prime hd’s are sold out and aquaillumination is not shipping any to stores..... maybe they are working on upgrading the primes??? Well I ended up getting the hydra knowing it’s a bit much but hey I will be getting a new tank this year and it will carry over. My concern is if this mount is safely installed on the glass, it’s a heavy light and the gooseneck is also heavy. I just don’t know if it could break the glass from to much stress or if I’m just over worrying. Hope some one can chime in.

    Alkalinity and calcium

    Hello, I'm struggling to understand the relationship between alkalinity and calcium levels in my tank. I’ve read a ton about it but I’m still confused. I have a high level of calcium (500) and low alkalinity (7) I’m not sure how to address this. I have B-Ionic calcium buffer system with component 1 alkalinity and component 2 calcium but I’ve never used it. Can someone help me out? Specifically can you tell me what you would do in my situation. I have a 13.5 gallon fluval evo tank. I also have a protein skimmer attached For coral I have some mushrooms and Xenia, a pink birds nest coral, zoas, and some leather corals. Additionally I have a coco worm (hard tube feather duster), a clownfish, 2 cardinalfish, and one tiny goby.
  15. Picked up 2 new acans and 1 micromussa over the weekend plus a Hanna ph checker
  16. Silly question but does anyone know if flowerpot corals can be placed next to each other or will one sting the other. I picked up a new frag last weekend and it’s a different color then my current one.
  17. Saw this thing in my tank today, does anyone know what it is and should I be concerned...... also found a couple of aptasias on my sand bed😵🤬

    Acan question

    Just picked up an acan frag on Friday and was wondering if a tailspin blenny and citrinis clown goby are same from it. I saw a couple of post about acans eating fish so it made me a bit concerned.

    What tank should I choose?

    Hey everyone, I'm looking at getting my first tank but am a bit indecisive. I'm trying to decide between a Waterbox 20 Cube, Innovative Marine 20 Nuvo Fusion, and a Fluval 13.5 Evo. What would you choose and why? As for lighting, I'm going to get the AI prime. Thanks!
  20. Went to the LFS and saw this flower pot coral, it was only $14.99 so thought I would give it a try i guess my citrinis clown goby likes it lol

    Duncan

    My Duncan is getting larger but one of the heads isn’t growing as much and is not even open in this picture.
  22. So I have had my evo since they first came out back in the middle of 2016 and recently I noticed some of my lights went out. Contacted fluval and they sent me a new light under warranty. It appears to be slightly different and the led’s seem to be better protected...... problem was that the freaking new light wouldn’t even turn on 😒. Fluval is sending me another one that should arrive today so hopefully that one actually works. But wanted to share some pics of the new light. The old one is on the right, new one on the left. Also the connectors are better and have a tighter fit
  23. I started my new reef tank earlier this week (a fluval evo 13.5) and I added live rock, live sand (about 1.5 inches), and premium reef saltwater that my LFS mixed up for me. I’ve also been adding fluval cycle concentrated biological booster at the rate they suggest for a new tank. I have some questions regarding cycling. A lot of the videos I have watched online suggest first adding live rock, sand, and water, the next week adding a clean up crew, and then once the cycle is completed to add fish. However I’ve spoken on the phone with three of my LFSs and all three have told me to start my cycle by adding a fish. There is a lot of conflicting information out there, I was hoping that you guys could weigh in and give me some pros and cons with each option. If I decide to cycle with a fish, can I add a banggai cardinal fish? Additionally, when can I add coral?? This tank is primarily for coral, i'm just adding a fish or two for fun. A lot of articles that I have read say that I can add my coral now if I want, and that they won't be impacted by my tank cycling. Is this true? Lastly, if anyone has some suggestions on easy to care for corals, i'm always happy for more suggestions. Thanks so much!
  24. Hey all! Been lurking on this forum for several years, making a few posts here and there. I just set up another (this is my 4th) reef tank a little over three weeks ago and I'm very excited for it. The live rock I added is coming alive more and more every day, and copeopods are flourishing. Just added the first wave of my CUC a few days ago after params stabalized. Four dwarf hermits, one turbo snail, and one nerite snail. Have some good hitchhikers coming out of my rock as well. One small hairy legged reef crab, a few bristleworms, lots of those small starfish and one serpent star. Anyways here's a pic sorry if this went on and on, just excited to be back in the hobby. Thanks guys!
  25. Going to add a new fish today, would a tail spot blenny get along with a citrinis clown goby? My tank is a fluval evo 13.5 and i think it’s finally time to add another fish but want something peaceful.
