Hey guys, I am writing a review of this tank in an article, and need some pictures. Mine is a mess right now, so I was wondering if I could use some of yours? I will be sure to source them.

Here's my desktop spec. Just converted over from a pico reef tank to a planted tank. I plan on upgrading the lighting to 3-4 3w Cree LEDs that I have laying around, just have to get a driver for them.

Apologies for the crappy photo, but I thought I'd take a quick pic of mine and put it up here.

I'm so excited! My boyfriend bought me a spec for Christmas! I can't wait to set it up. Any suggestions on plants or soil?

I dose Excel 1ml per day. Using floea substrate. Glosso and hairgrass planted infront. Plant at the back doesn't look healthy but I'm planning on taking it off.

Any suggestions on what fish to keep with Mexican orange lobsters (cpo) ornery suggestions also welcome. Thanks

You'll have problems with more than one CPO

And fish don't belong in a Spec.

Nice looking tank!! How did you get your moss to stay there? And would I kill a moss wall by using excel?

That is really neat. What modifications have you made to the spec? Different lights? Addition of co2?
