Hello fellow reefers guess its about time i started a little journal of my little pico tank. quick history, been reefing for about 5 years with a 45 gallon then took a 3 year break from the hobby. some coworkers got into the hobby and found out i used to own a reef tank. they were able to convince me to get back in. so with limited space in my apartment and wanting something simple yet challenging i always wanted to take a crack at a nano/pico tank. after some research i found the fluval evo line. i wanted the 13.5 but didnt have a place that could support the weight so i settled with the evo 5. so here we go Equitment Tank: Fluval evo 5 gallon 20.5 x 11.6 x 7.5" Return pump: NEWA MN606 - 159gph Lighting: stock 11k LED with 12inch ebay blue led strip Filtration: intank media basket with Top. floss Middle. carbon.

Hi there I stubled upon this challange and thought it was the PERFECT excuse for an office tank. I am playing with dryscape right now. Tank is not at my office yet. I want to get all the pieces together first then take it in. Is seeding from existing tanks ok? So here is my entry into the challenge Tank Fluval Evo V Pump Cobalt 606 Heater ? Lights Stock + 2 blue led strips Fliter area Intank media basket with floss and cpe in the very bottom a bit of a block of marine pure ATO Will be some sort of diy with the stock pump from the tank. Stock will be flowery I hope (Guys I am not very creative) Rock flowers a plenty Zoas I may do a small torch or other euphilla to act as the "tree" in my flower garden. Maybe a little piece of cyphastrea once I figure out how the light really is.
Hello to all! I have a 13.5 fluval tank that replaced my 5 gallon, however I now work from home and I brought the 5 gallon back out to put on my desk! I was wondering if anyone has found any better pumps that can replace the one the tank came with. It works and all, it just does not have enough flow for me. Any info would be greatly appreciated!
Hello fellow reefers, As the title reads I recently was gifted a Fluval Evo 5 gallon. I started the tank 12/26/18 with live rock and live sand. A couple days later after the sand had settled I went back down to my LFS and bought my Yellow Watchmen goby. The tank is currently cycling and I won't add any other live critters for a little. This is my second nano tank, my previous was a Biocube 29 that I ran for a year with coral and fish. I'm excited to be back in the hobby. I plan on buying a Xp Aqua ATO and a Koralia nano power head. I'm also entertaining the idea of modifiying the rear compartment to hold rubble rock and cheato. I also ordered some Brightwell aquatics complete bio culture , and chemipure nano. I check salinity daily and, keep 2 gallons of rodi water under the desk. Current set up includes stock pump, stock light, stock filtration Cobalt Neotherm 50watt heater temperature 76 degrees, salinity 1.023 3-6 lbs of live rock 3-4 lbs live sand one Yellow watchmen goby
