    Request for custom made nano lid

    I’m wondering if anyone has somewhere to get a custom lid for the fluval evo 13.5g, or if anyone who 3D prints or DIYs would be willing to make me one. I need a mesh lid but with the frame not covering the rear 3.5" My in-tank skimmer required me to saw off a 3.5" by 3.5" hole in the rear corner...

    Protein skimmer bubbles not reaching the top

    I’m pretty new to protein skimmers because I have a nano tank and haven’t had the need for one in the past, so I’m confused on some things. I got the eshopps nano skimmer and was told to not let the bubbles overflow, so I set the water level low. But aren’t the bubbles at least supposed to reach...

    Best overhead light for nano reef?

    My 13.5g fluval evo isn’t mature enough to start adding corals yet, but for when I do, I found this really interesting lid made specifically for that tank (I have to have a lid because of cats). This would give me the ability to get a better light so maybe I could grow more types of coral than I...

    Evo 13.5 add cheap blue light bar

    Would it hurt the corals to add a cheap blue light bar to the tank and run it with the stock light? I'm just hoping to make the coral pop out a little more. AQUANEAT Aquarium LED Submersible Light 7.5 Inch Underwater Stick Strip Bar Lamp Fish Tank (Blue) https://a.co/d/eVHUIci

    Fluval Evo 13.5

    Hello all, It's been many years since I had a reef tank. Took it down in 2017 when a family member got sick and work was super crazy. I was sad to see it go but a relief it has been.

    Brown Algae?

    See attached a picture of my tank, but with a horrible brown algae outbreak. First sign was about ten days ago, tank has been set up for a little under two months. Should I just leave it and let my tank get overgrown, or should I remove it/get a clean up crew to eat it? Want to get into growing...
