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.
