New 7000K version of Spec V?

I'm trying to find an on line retailer who has the new version (7000K light upgrade) of the Fluval Spec V. I checked Amazon and Petco but can't tell if they are selling the new version or the older one with a dimmer light. Any suggestions?
Thanks,
Kim

Try Petsmart, I saw a couple that were on clearance for 69 if I recall. You have to go check in stores cause they are not online anymore.

I'd say your chances are low on getting the old version.

There may not be many more of the old version around. I got the old one at Petsmart on Black Friday, but then I ordered one off Amazon for a gift and the new version came.

Thanks for the replies. I would like to order one from Amazon but I definitely do not want the older version. Wish there was a way to confirm that they will ship the newer version.

Looks like I found one of the new models on eBay. I'll know for sure when it arrives on March 14.

I ordered mine through Amazon from Petco in January and it was the updated version.

Ps. Drs Foster and Smith has the Spec V on sale for $67.99! That's an awesome deal!
