Carolina Biological Supply Company First Impressions

"5 years in to ownership."

The Evo has the same capacity but seems like a much bigger tank than the Portrait. If this goes well I have a spare 75g at home I'll probably convert into a reef tank. The pic is a bit cloudy since I just filled it up and its still cycling. I used a binder clip to clamp the tube down and decrease the air entering the tank. My ammonia is undetectable including the N2 and N3. The size is in the description is accurate. It contains 8 styrofoam corner protectors on the tank.

Carolina Biological Supply Company Final Thoughts

"Filter finally gave out!"

I bought two of these tanks and the quality of them in just amazing. Final gripe and its not a big deal is that there isn't a lid over the feeding hole. All in all it is packaged very well. I didn't notice the dust on the glass until I reviewed the zoomed in pictures. It sits inside of styrofoam and is double boxed and wrapped once with bubble wrap. 1 gallon puts my other 7 tanks to shame. I had a coworker who also likes fish helping me and we had it together in 15 minutes.

Use seachem prime and stability with every water change and as needed by directions. I still keep it as a hospital tank. You must buy a special one they produce for marine tanks. Live rock is where much of the filtering goes on,. The pic is a bit cloudy since I just filled it up and its still cycling. Clean silicone lines and clear glass.

I do 1 drop per two gallons 3x a week for first few months. Overall great package and would definitely buy it again and recommend it.

Aquarium Masters AM33012 Final Thoughts

"Recommended."

I put it opposite the return pump and it creates awesome flow. That will make it easier to maintain the water temp and find a heater. Wanted the ADA look but on a budget and this fits the bill. I immediately noticed that the glass moves slightly in the corners when pressed on. It really makes it easy to keep the outside surface clean and shiny! I picked this, because it was simple and had everything I needed. I plan on plenty invertebrates and softies only so I may never need to upgrade.

I have been an active fish keeper for years. After the foam is in I put the gravel in. I added a small circulation pump to get better water movement. The stock pump is high quality but opted to use it in the tank to circulate water. I really like the ceramic media as it provides a great home for the'good' bacteria. My ammonia is undetectable including the N2 and N3. Mine loves lounging and swimming through ours.
