    Clownfish Jumping from my Fluval Evo

    Has anyone else with a Fluval Evo had a problem with clownfish jumping out? I lost one last night, and this is the second time a clownfish has jumped out in the ~5 years I've had the tank. I guess I should cover the little opening in the front. Does anyone have good ideas for what to use to...

    Fluval Evo 13.5 stand

    I was tight on space and looked high and low for a good size match for Fluval Evo 13.5. Just wanted to save others time if they are in the same boat. This worked very well as an Evo stand; nearly the same size so little extra wasted space...

    I don't have a 3D printer <yet>, but the thought crossed my mind that maybe one could be used to make a custom {and homemade} mesh lid for the EVO 13.5. There are a few nice ones out there that I have seen online, but they are pricey. Dave
