Just bought a Spec today. I'm gonna start scaping tomorrow. These are great little tanks. I got mine for $12 brand new! I will post pics as soon as it's up and running. Here it is with just water in it so I could see how the filter works and how bright the light is with water in it.

If there's a solution to your problem then you have nothing to worry about. If there isn't, then you have nothing to worry about either.

Hehe...I had a turtle filter that was given to me that I never used because I don't have a turtle. and sold it for $45. The Fluval Spec was $53 at Petco. So I ended up spending $12 and some change for the new Nano. So really I had no choice, I was forced to buy the Spec. Ever since I started reading the thread "Newmans Shrimp Bowl" I've totally wanted a Nano. And the Fluval Spec just looks like a great little Nano!

You may be wondering..

"What does the original poster's tank look like at the present?"

Congrats! Looking fwd to your pics!

Thanks for the kind words -- I like the zen-like starkness of the first photo, but I also wanted more stem plants and some floaters.

The fishy just arrived! Drip acclimating now!

Thanks. The Sunset hygro grows really slow with the stock light. I was thinking of removing the flame moss on the ground and doing a little sunset carpet look. That crypt parva on the left was removed as well. Bolbitus, anubias, and fissidens all do well so they will stay. The flame moss just looks messy and doesn't twist like it should.

I'm having a hard time deciding if the stock light is my issue. I'm getting some algae in there... I had a team of snails working on it, but a CPO wiped them out lol.

I'm not sure if the light is causing the imbalance, or something else. Regardless, I've ignored my spec lately with my new tank I received. :\
