Fluval Spec lll

I have been visiting this site for a long time trying to gather as much great information as possible. I figured I would share a picture of my year old tank. This hobby, although frustrating at times, sure brings me a lot of joy!

Bump: Dang it! Blew my first ever post. Not sure why the picture is sideways? Sorry!

Haha, no worries, it happens sometimes. I'm not sure how or why though

Your tank more than makes up for it! Very nice job

I wouldn't mind reading more about it. Lighting upgrades, CO2 setup, etc. Thanks!

Hi KayakJimW,
I used a Finnex Planted Plus clip light for about a year and some of the LED's started to fail. So, I recently purchased a Kessil A80 Sun, which is now my light source...great light! Powerful though, I run the light for 8 hours at about 70%. My CO2 set-up is a paintball tank with a Green Leaf Aquariums regulator, diffuser, and bubble counter. I run the CO2 at one bubble per two seconds. I dose 4 drops of iron and 2 drops of potassium every other day...seems to work for me. My home is on a well, and the water quality is horrible, so I use distilled water and Equilibrium for water changes. I have way too much money invested in this little tank, but as long as my wife doesn't know...its all good! Thanks for the compliment.

Looking GREAT! I didn't realize Kessil made a light for nano sized aquariums

Hi Fincenzo,

They just came out with it a couple of months ago. Bit of overkill for my little tank, but I really like it! Attached is a picture of the light.
