|Deano85||I found that an M5 metric bolt worked the best for me.|

|MABJ||Ah. I couldn't tell you the specs on it. I could show you a picture if it would help you though.|

|Deano85||Yes, I'm referring to the plastic bolt.|

|MABJ||It uses two different types of screws, not including the plastic bolt that clamps onto the back glass.|

|Deano85||Does anyone know what size screw to use for the light?|

Is your tank just for shrimp or fish?
If shrimp, you may not need a heater.
In either case, you should read up on how to cycle a tank before purchasing any livestock.

This slot comes just below the top of the filter media. I think it's slightly below the level of the overflow grates.
I already filled it in with sealant - easy to do before I fill it. If I decide I want it open I can always just poke it out. This slot would allow water to bypass the filter - I want to force it all through the filter from the top.
I was playing around with fitting the Hydor Theo heater in there with the pump last night. Tight squeeze! Not sure I will ever get it installed with the suction cups - heater might just have to hang there.

|MABJ||Oh wow I actually don't know what that is. It isn't on my Spec II. With the filter media, where's it come up to on there?|

All Fluval Spec Mods
Here is a picture - I'm asking about the slot on the left side of the picture. This is the panel that divides pump section from the filter media section.

Great ideas from everyone - thanks.
I got a spec V that I'm going to build after Christmas with my boys. Based on ideas here I've already put aquarium silicone in place to seal up the slot between the main tank and the filter section.
Question: should I also seal up the slot between the filter and pump sections (slot near the top)? What is this for? I figured as a safety to get water to the pump if the filter media is clogged.
