Another member on here gave me a way to baffle the sump type filter. I'm in the process of trying to find the gear I need to do it (Air hose clamp) but none of our stores have them right now. Go figure. xD If it ends up working, I'll forward the info on how to do it. :)

How's the noise on the filter? I read a review on Petco.com from someone saying it was too noisy for them and they returned it. I'm looking into getting the 8g size (hopefully while it's still on sale at Petco).

It was a little noisy but not bad at all in my opinion.

They do have lids.

I have been having a conversation with someone about the flow rate in this tank. It is too strong for a betta, but it is easy to fix.

The pump is connected to the output by a flexible hose. This is how you should mod it.

Drill a small hole in the flexible hose, right above that put an airline clamp on the hose to restrict the flow. The access water will be pushed out of the hole that you drill. Place the heater in the same chamber as the pump. Water will be circulated in that chamber making the heater more efficient.




Itís what I did on my Spec and it worked like a charm.

nice. I got a good look at the Evolve 2 while at Petsmart today. My only real complaint is that they should have made the filter more like the Spec. Their filter takes up the whole back of the tank but when you really look at it it's just a little disposible filter pad. The Spec has a huge sponge that takes up more than half of the back section.
Oh well, I'm sure things can be modded. lol
