Default Fluval Spec V - Mopani Dreams

Just set up my new Fluval Spec V. Very cool tank, love the dimensions, build quality is nice. Unique floorplan to work with.

This is going to be a little more maintenance intensive than my 3G Picotope was. Planning on low light EI dosing, Excel usage and a little higher light. May go with a disposable CO2 setup or DIY. Space is an issue, as is wife aggro for cluttering up the kitchen. Aesthetic is #1.

Layout of the tank is going to focus on open space. May carpet the down slope. Wife likes it as is. We will see.

No stock yet. Planning on 10 Boraras briggitae and some sort of neo. Maybe blue diamonds? PFR's have been moved to the 60p.
