    Seahare's shell exposed!

    Hello all! I have a fluval Evo 13.5 AIO. My seahare decided to squeeze through the tiny hole on the AIO divider. It was alive and immediately went back to eating when i put it back in the DT (and I closed that hole again. Sneaky little seahare). But I've noticed that its shell is exposed...

    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...

    I finally pulled the trigger and bought myself a Hanna test kit (Salinity, PH, Nitrate, Phosphate, Calcium, Alk).

    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...

    Acan ID and questions

    Good afternoon, I would like any help on an ID on this Acan I just picked up. I was wondering if it is safe to put other acans on the same rock or what else would be safe around it. I also have a toadstool about 10” away, could that be a problem? I have a 13.5 gallon fluval. Thanks much everyone.
