Default newb SpecV

Great looking tanks, I need to work on plant diversity.....

Yeah, I used larger size gravel. I'm just a planted tank newb on the attack.

I've been enjoying it though. It's great to have there to look at and it works well for taking the mind off work for a moment.

I was thinking of redoing it with new substrate. Do you think I would risk a cycle crash? It's been established for about 3 months.

Default New member, My spec

My no-substrate leaf litter Fluval Spec 3. Waiting for more tannins to leech.

Taken with phone camera, will upload a better one later. This camera does no justice ):

Also have a question. I bought the Fluval CFL 11w 6400k light fixture recently, but i am seeing everyone else using the 13w 6700k EBI light. I am wondering if the fixture if the same and just a different lamp (in which case I can just buy a replacement 13w lamp and fit that) or are they different and unable to use with my fitting?

I've been very busy at work and have neglected my Spec. Definitely time for a trim!

Get those fish out of there. That's just sad.

2G tall is barely suitable for a betta.

Tagged for future reference. Amazing tanks, guys! (and gals?)

My little Spec 2G just arrived today. I hope to get some shots up soon, as it takes shape!

Default 2 gal Set Up

Here's the spec I set up over a year ago, I just finally got back to this page!

The fish are goldfish fry that are growing out and will be moved soon to a larger tank-(I have a 360 gal pond with goldfish- they will join the others in the spring).

This is a very low tech- no frets, no tabs, nothing! Standard lights, with tahiti sand. One nana petite, and a Windelov fern.

I literally top off the tank and feed the fry every week and scrape some algea, but really no maintenance at all.

This is my first nano so I kept it pretty simple. The plants are Anubias barteri var. nana, hydrocotyle of some kind, and Limnophila aromatic.

Here's mine, not a good pic taken off my phone but its all I got right now! I'm jealous of you with the V, I bought mine when they first came out so that one wasn't available yet.. love the shape of it. Anywho mine is a native tank, literally everything in it I've collected personally. I have a potting mix substrate capped with sugar sand. Plants are dwarf hairgrass, water velvet and dwarf water lettuce. I also have one ghost shrimp and a female least killi along with a couple snails. Looking forward to see how it grows in and hopefully soon ill manage to catch a couple more h. Formosa and shrimp!

Forgot to say julesj93 I love the leaf litter! I tried diligently to start a Blackwater tank with a 29g I had but I had nothing but problems. Apparently southern oak leaves are different and riddled with crap because no matter how many times I soaked, washed, rinsed and boiled it always created a nasty cloudy goop. I'd still love to manage one some day.

Just edited post.. sorry i got wrong name! I was thinking Kamco because I love the "island" type design in your spec!
