Planted Tank Obsessed
CryptKeeper54's Fluval Spec V
Here it is, my impulse buy of the week. Saw this at a LFS so decided to pick one up. The Fluval Spec V. Initial thougts:
1) I love the original spec, so naturally I love the style of the spec V.
2) This tank is meant to be viewed from both sides, so aquascape accordingly.
3) LED light leaves much to be desired from planted tank enthusiasts. The light seems cheap and flimsy. Sags at the end cause it's so long. Still good enough for low light tanks (which was my plan) but no where near the output of an eheim aquastyle LED light.
I have'nt forgot you little spec.
Next to my Schuber Wright for size comparison
Shameless plug for my Ehiem Aquastyles

p.s. Going to clean up this thread later. Getting late and barely awake as I type this.
