I just purchased a Fluval Spec V and order plants for it. I might have over ordered on plants but I figured I would post on here and see what you guys think.

2x pots of Pigmy Chain Sword, Echinodorus tenellus

1x ECHINODORUS PARVIFLORUS 'TROPICA' Small Sword

1x Cryptocoryne undulata

1x Riccia Fluitans (2x3" piece) Not sure if im going to put it on the driftwood i picked up or maybe let it float.

1x Cryptocoryne parva

Here's an older pic. I've pulled the parva and replaced it with a mini fiss carpet. I'll take a new pic when the lights come back on tomorrow

What is the light you used? That doesn't appear to be the stock lamp.

New scape in the spec. Much happier. Blyxa japonica and elatine hydropiper.

Finnex; the stock light just was not cutting it for me (plus I am going to be doing CO2 in this tank so need more light to compensate).

Just picked up some Glosso today I am going to be planting around the stones.

I've seen quite a few people using Finnex. If the stock one doesn't cut it with the stock list i have so far ill likely order one.

My favorite tank right now. Home to male endlers. Plants are stargrass, riccia, anubias, and pennywort.


I suffer from MTS...and enjoy every minute
