My Desk Spec
3 Attachment(s)
I set up my spec last week with the Fluval PCL 13 Watt light. I've got a Hydor Theo 25 Watt heater in the pump chamber.

Substrate is Eco-Complete. Hardscape is a couple of small driftwood branches and some river rock to hold them down until they waterlog.

Plants are all scraps from other tanks. There's a little crypt of some sort in there, some Hydrocotyle sibthorpioides, blyxa that was wasting away in another tank, anubias, a stem I can't identify, Asian Ambulia, Taiwan or Xmas moss on the wood and some duckweed.

Right now, Jasper, one of my bettas is hanging out in there. But I don't think he's permanent.

Thanks! I spotted him at Petco. He has this iridescent thing going on where his color looks different depending on how the light is hitting him...light purples, blues and greens always touched with some pale yellow-orange. I am really growing quite fond of him. He might get to stay on my desk permanently.

Thank you so much! Everyone's tanks on here always look so great that I have been very reluctant to post any photos of mine. The one in the back is my 29 gallon. It was my first real planted tank. It is a real mish-mosh of stuff. I tend to just put stuff in and see if it grows with little to no planning. :hihi:

Nice tanks! I'm so jealous of everyone and their desk tanks!

The tank & the betta are beautiful!!

Sweet Spec. Are you dosing anything in the tank? The Fluval light looks great over the Spec.

CrazyCatPeekin 03-03-2012 12:36 PM

I dose Pfertz and use Excel...both sparingly in the Spec due to its size.
