So, this is my experimental Fluval Spec V.
I've had it up for about 2 months now. It used to be a Fluval Spec V until I basically ripped everything out. .-. I don't even know why I purchased this consider how different it is now. In some ways I'm ashamed of myself, but at the same time I don't mind.
Right now, the inhabitants are a plakat betta, 4 neon tetra and a mystery snail.
I'm in the process of changing out my inflow and outflows for my canister, the inflow shattered during delivery so I'm waiting on the replacement. Rock are Ohko. The glass is smeared and smudgy since I haven't cleaned the glass. ' __'...
Right side is pretty much establish, left side is being newly planted. Not sur what to do with the left side to be honest.

My goal is to get a CO2 system, get a larger tank and some more plants.
That probably won't happen until September though.
Oddly, I find myself enjoying the plants in this tank more than the fish themselves. Don't get me wrong, I love my fish, but there's something relaxing about aquascaping and tending to the plants that's more satisfying for me than just watching my fish.
