Hoping to start a build thread on my current long standing 13.5 Fluval Evo tank. I’ve had it up and running for about half a year now after shutting it down to my main tank which I’m working on finishing currently (New thread for that hopefully soon). However have since decided to start my 13.5 again. I bought some kinda cheap 20 gal aquarium stand from my local petsmart, as well as the standard equipment the tank comes with. If you look closely, it’s not very well kept lol.

Just realized my flow is off so I’ll be updating this in about 20 minutes. I had microscopic clownfish in here but recently moved to my main DT in our basement. Trying to convert to a nem tank. @Bleigh there you go lol ;Meh

I really like those 13.5 evos I’ve been debating on getting once myself for the kitchen. What are your thoughts on it?
I love it tbh the tank itself is really well built, it functions well and it’s not very expensive. All in all I highly recommend this tank especially for a small addition to any living space really really good idea honestly.

I would upgrade your lighting to keep anemones. I dont think the evo stock lights can output enough light for them. An AI prime works great over the evo.
I have a couple extra AI Primes and I’ve got a ‘reef LED’ that I bought from petco. Not great but you’re right

LOLLLL don’t worry I removed all the corals to my new system, and for those wondering, I took down my 125 DT, I’ve transitioned to my new 50 gal frag tank system.

Going to add a third fluval 13.5 behind the one on the left and raise it up so it can be viewed from any side. Want to keep some zoanthid and mushrooms in it. Love these little tanks.
