Thank you ALL for the recognition! This is such a fun hobby and I’m sooooo glad I found this community of fantastic people. My tank wouldn’t be where it is today without the wealth of information I received here at R2R!
Thank You all and God Bless!

This is an awesome setup!! I didn’t get nearly as creative with my Evo but I have plans... I’ll be looking to your tank for major inspiration, Mike!
Very flattering!
Please feel free to PM me if you have any questions. I’d be glad to answer!

What filtration are you running? I have a fluval 13.5.
Thanks for asking Eric.
I’m using the InTank chamber #1 media basket with flow diverter to force flow through the basket ( bottom level has the stock bio-thingies AND a bag of plastic bio balls, middle level has ChemiPure Elite and carbon cubes and the top layer has 2 layers of carbon infused filter pad on top of a 50 micron pad).
The middle chamber (#2) has a 50watt heater and a UV lamp. Lamp runs 24/7.
The “pump house” has a Sicce 1.0 return pump and I have a Spin Stream random flow head on the outlet.
The hole in the false wall at chamber #2 is also plugged!

I can second this! Definitely want to upgrade to the InTank media baskets. I’m using the chamber 2 basket and I have some bio cubes from AlgaeBarn, some macro and a brand new red mangrove in the first chamber. I also upgraded the pump to a Zetlight 1000(?)... it’s adjustable from 100ish-273 gph and has a feeding mode that I really like.
Now I have to post a pic too... this is from about 2 months ago. I’m ashamed to say I have taken new pictures lately! (Nevermind the nem I’m nursing back to health on the right... looks much better now!)
