fluval spec question?

The Fluval spec is only 45 dollars on Amazon while the Fluval spec 3 is 69 dollars. My questions are, is it reallly worth paying 69 dollars for the newer Fluval spec 3? Is the Fluval spec smaller? And...is the Fluval spec 3 better? Thanks.

Never owned a Fluval Spec, but I think the 3 is the 3-gallon model (and the fluval spec 5 is the 5 gallon model) and so on.

I have the original spec which is two gallons. Everything is great on it except the light. The light is a little weak but it'll be okay for low light plants.
