I got my Spec in August and when I set it up I put the tiniest baby Crypts in it that I'd been growing in my goldfish tank. None of them were more than about 1.5" high, so it's grown so much.





No livestock as yet, although I want Red Cherry shrimp in there. DIY CO2, weekly AE Aqua Nourish and daily AE Aqua Carbon.

They are around 2 gallons, depending on what you put in it. I got mine from a local pet shop on clearance for cheap.

$32.99 with Wag.com's 50% off coupon & free shipping.

Shown with stock lighting right now but probably will try to switch out with the Fluval Flora's 13w lamp as I picked up a 26w Finnex for my Flora.

note: forgot to pull out the thermometer before I snapped pic with my HTC Evo, whoops

Just ordered one of these bad boys plus a 25W mini heater with an Amazon giftcard I got for Christmas. I had been looking for a nano tank and this should fit the bill perfectly. I have the perfect spot for it right next to my monitor. Just wondering, but is the light on a separate plug than the filter, that way I can put it on a timer?

Yes, it is one of those big brick type plugs that's annoying to put on a power strip lol

Haha, that's not ideal but I can work with it. Just happy that it is on a different plug so I can use a timer.

Looks good, Cohazard. Is that a shrimp or fish on/near the wood?
