I have it on it's lowest setting and it's pretty fast for him, but he's ok. He loves eating all my baby shrimp. I had about 60-80 rcs. I have about half now, hahaha

Spec after about a month. Plants and shrimp seem to be thriving. The stock light + excel dosing seems to be doing well

I couldn't miss ordering a Spec as it was only 36.99 and it arrived today. It's so dinky! I've wanted RCS for a long time and this is the perfect little tank for having a few in. I've set it on my bedside table but I'm not going to set it up until tomorrow. I have nothing to put in it because I wasn't sure of it's size, but I have ordered a bunch of low-light plants that can go into my 20 gallon tank if there's too many.

Can't wait to set it up!

I love all these little "Spec's" - they all look so good!
Blackphantom09 - welcome to the club! I have mine on my nightstand as well and set the lights so it's lite about 30 minutes after I crawl into bed. You'll love it!

Esworp - you have better patience then I! It looks great now that it so grown in. Great job

Esworp - I'm starting with small stuff too. I put three baby Crypts I'd grown in my goldfish tank and put them in my Spec. I've got a veryyy long wait ahead of me. I might put a couple of Java fern in the back but I'm undecided.

I've also put a diy CO2 system on it using a wooden airstone whilst I'm waiting for my glass on and bubble counter, but I've got a feeling it's overkill. There's bubbles everywhere!
