Yes, $100 is extremely low and reasonable price. I got mine for Christmas and it was on sale for $70! There is nothing wrong with the modern silver borders to cover the seams. It is a wonderful tank. One flaw, a mini heater can not be added into the main tank. The lid does not have a routing hole for the wire, so a mini heater has to be put inside the outlow chamber of the filter in order for the wire to go thru the lid's open pathway.
Also, if someone wants to use a different light strip, the lid will have to go in order to snap on a different light strip on the glass.

I have had this tank for about 3 months now and I am real happy with it, considering it cost me $95 at my LFS and came basically with everything you need to go home and get it setup for cycling right away.
I am no expert... yet lol - but so far the stock light on it seems sufficient for low light plants, sure they arent growing FAST but they are growing, it is a good light if you go with low light plants, which I have... plus I have floating plants for my tigher endler fry which shades plants below and they still are gradually growing. Not to mention I only dosed prime twice in the 3 months or so of ownership (I stopped because of concerns for my inverts in the tank... it seemed they didnt like it but I need to research this more).
Anyway, if you are interested in this tank take a look at my new journal:
and if you dont feel like clicking, here is a picture of my current scape with this tank:
hopefully this helped you guys

I just bought mine today and will be setting it up and cycling it tonight.
I plan on supplementing the light with 2- 12" ecoxotic stunner strips at 8k that I purchased last year. I haven't been using them for anything since I took down my large 75 gallon planted.
Also, I picked up a bag of CaribSea Flora Max from Petsmart for under 11 bucks. Does anyone have any experience with this product? I liked the EcoComplete I used in my 75 so I figured I would give this a try. It looks like the exact same product only in a different package.

|somewhatshocked||No one has provided PAR data that I've seen but they're perfect for low light plants and not much more.|

Fluval Spec V
Does anyone have PAR data on the stock light for the 5 gallon Spec?

|xjasminex||I bought one yesterday at petsmart for 80.99 after tax! I'm still contemplating the scape...|

I bought one and am cycling it.
But then I thought "I need a quarantine tank.". So I wen ten Craigslist and got a 10, a 5, a 2.5 and a stand with a light, and filter for the 10 plus some silk plants.
All that for $40.
Am doing a lot of cleaning right now.

|cichlidiot||Here is mine out of the box and assembled. The lights are ok. I will use this as a shrimp tank with some low light plants. This looks like it is a quality tank. The filter area will hold a lot of media and ther is room for a heater. I need to invest in a better camera.|

was thinking about a pair of these over the deep blue 18" betta tanks. You get filtration built in, and if the light isn't strong enough I have a spare marineland double bright LED and a spare single bright LED (both 18" models) that I could put on top.
One for shrimps, the other for a pair of pearly occelatus.
