Show me your Spec!
 
Just got mine put together, not ready for a pic quite yet, what for the cloudyness..

I'll show you mine if you show me your Fluval Spec. :]

I almost bought one!!

My LPS here has it on sale for 49.99 *sigh* if only I wasn't low on budget.

I have to Admit I had to have one! Here's mine

Just a bunch of lower light Java, Crypts and Anubia for now and a couple of RCS and snails (MTS and Ramshorn) Sits on my night stand and lovely to gaze at before bed. :)

esworp - how's yours coming along? Love that you have co2 in it! what's the "grass" that you have in it? Is it filling in nicely?

antbug - looks great!

Thanks, duff. Nice job yourself. Your layout makes the tank look a lot wider than it is. I need to bring my camera in the office so i can get a better pic.

My spec started on my night stand untill my son pulled it down. Now it's a work. :hihi:

duff 07-05-2011 06:13 PM

Uuhh - I was so sad to see that! I actually fastened mine (the nightstand) to the wall after I saw that. No kids running around but I am a clutz and murphy seems to visit me fairly often. Would love to see an update when you get a chance.

They sure are tiny little things, that's for sure but I've found it nice to watch it at night - tiny, peaceful and self contained.

Update us when you can!

Quick question - did you have to cover the intake slots on yours? My 3 shrimp and few snails kept ending up in the back - I swapped white foam for black foam now and it looks a bit better but the surface scum still hangs out in the front area with the foam covering it... Do you have that issue?

It is micro chain sword, according to the little tab that I threw away a million years ago. :] It propagates really well in straight lines, so it will cover ground fast but thin - once the runners start criss-crossing each other, you get a good lawn.

Honestly, I'm struggling with green spot algae. I had to travel for a week: turned my co2 down and made for a shorter light interval - but still have a dusting of green. :/

I have a few fry in mine:

If you keep the water level low, the exposed height of the slots prevent my baby mollies and skirt tetras from getting sponged. Not that they cared if they end up on the sponge side.. they seem to enjoy picking at it.

Yup. still growing. :]

duff 07-10-2011 08:03 PM

Yes it is! Very nice - growing so quickly. Amazing what Co2 will do for a little tank :) Those fry look huge! LOL


Come on Spec owners - show em off, we know they are out there!

These guys are sweet little tanks. Bought one for a buddy and he is nano reefing in one.

great job everyone! i just got a spec a couple weeks ago.....and have been trying to decide which kind of shrimp to put in it. i think i'm going with a lower grade CRS....as i've not kept them before (other kinds of shrimp though). i'll have to get mine all nice and pretty, then take a pic :D
