I upgraded to the minijet 606 and did the same thing. Works great. I was just talking about the stock pump.

LOL that would do it.

Cleans up the look a lot... I definitely recommend it! (your heater may be pushing the limits of what can fit in there, though)

Efficiently, perhaps not, but it does work, considering that's where the majority of people put their heaters. All of the water in the tank goes through that chamber.

MoreyFan These spec v's look great. Thinking to get one now. According to the box I can put a goldfish in it! I'm sure that is true because they printed it.

The tank is 10" tall, so subtract an inch for substrate at you're looking at 9" at best.

Considering that light is over 100 PAR at 12", it must be BLAZING PAR at 9", unless it's been dimmed a LOT.

I would go with the Sat+, personally, not the Sat+ PRO. The Pro is way overpowered for a tank this size.

Shane98270 Looks good! Heres mine after rescaping it and adding some fauna. Ive got five celestial pearl danios and three pygmy corys in there. Waiting a bit to add cherry shrimp.
The rock on the left has been removed as it was just there to hold the wood I and the hc has grown in quite a bit. Ill upload a pic or two later tonight for comparison.

Dawagner Here's my new Spec V. Set it up on this past Sunday. I have had experience with salt water tanks in the past but sold them all when I bought my house 3 years ago. Now it all starts again with the purchase of a betta LOL.

Anyways all stock so far.

Substrate is the Fluval shrimp/plant stratum.

Plants are (I think) Micro sword, anubias nana, and a very small red tiger lotus.

I know the tiger lotus will out grow this but I liked it and it was free so for the time being it'l hang out in the corner.

Planning on getting some shrimp eventually once it cycles and such. Also would like to upgrade the light but not so much that I need to start CO2. Just want some better illumination. Let me know what you think!
