The Aqueon Evolve LED Aquarium Kit comes in three sizes: 2, 4, and 8 gallons. The Evolve kits are made using fired acrylic construction giving the aquarium a beautiful, seamless design.

Inherently, acrylic aquariums provide a much clearer viewing experience in comparison to glass. However, it comes at the cost of being relatively easy to scratch compared to glass aquariums.

Featuring an integrated QuietFlow Power Filter and biological filtration, the Evolve can easily sustain an aquarium ecosystem that requires minimal maintenance for fish keepers. Many prefer this tank for small nano fish such as bettas or tetras.

LED adjustable lighting with both daylight and moonlight. The kits include food and water care samples, LED lighting, complete filtration, filter cartridge, biological cartridge, cover for filter area, and cover for tank with feeding door.

If you like acrylic aquariums, this may be the starter nano kit for you.
