5 Gallon Fluval Spec
 
Saw one while I was ar Petsmart tonight. It looks like the 2 gal version, but it is longer, same filtration type, and a slim led light.

It was listed at $99 and I was tempted to pick it up, but was in a hurry and the wife would not have been happy ;)

I wish I took a pic, but again, was in a hurry.

Thought would share this for you nano tank keepers!

You sure it was a Fluval spec?

Absolutely, I thought it was a mistake but it was a Fluval Spec.

sure its not the chi one? Don't think i've seen a 5-gal version of spec. wish i would've bought that instead of the 2gal version if there's one.

Going back tomorrow for a pic and verification. I did a double take when i saw it but it is a 5 gal. spec.

Probably new since I can't find info on the internets.

I saw the price tag at my local petsmart but they didn't have stock out yet.
You describe it as longer, but in what dimension? Side to side or front to back?

Front to Back, it look like it had the same width of the 2gal.

Hmm, interesting. Think I'd rather have an evolve4 based on what my imagination thinks it looks like.

Hmmm, very interesting shape. Not very useful IMO, and they once again used the distracting silver pieces on the front seams.

I'm gonna be on that like a bad rash. They are great for shrimp tanks. And for the price you can't beat the all in one deal.

Ok, that looks a lot sweeter than i thought... Gonna have to inspect one in person.
Shrimp tank here we come, fluval is just all over the nanos.

I'm considering getting one to replace the 6.6g Petco Bookshelf tank I have in my office.

Buy it now at this low low price and they will throw in a light AND a filter.
