Update on my Fluval Spec. Did a rescape of the tank a some weeks back. Its a jungle in there again. Will probably to a trim some time soon.







Need to train the glosso to carpet. Hoping the upcoming trim will help it stay down.

Onenobee - that looks amazing! It makes it look so much bigger than it is.

Noahma - go for it! What's stopping you?

LOL. Understand completely.

I was able to "sneak" a 10g setup inside during the holidays and had Santa bring a Fluval Spec for my 7 year old daughter.

The huge tree plant is a branch from a shrub outside, or maybe you mean the skinny bits in the back? that's (goes and finds my notebook cause i never remember this crap).. heteranthera zosterifolia. The pretty red fellow is Alternathera reinickii. The lawn is Lilaeopsis brasiliensis.

The substrate is beach sand ... from outside. (I live near the ocean). I threw in a half-a-handfull of laterite for extra crunchyness.

OH to live near an ocean again... at least here I live by a very large river!

I am getting my spec today! UPS should be dropping it off this afternoon... can't wait!

I think I am going to do a wild harvest of some moss and liverwart this weekend while it is getting settled in. Dosing with PP. Anyone tried this in a spec?

Also, thinking of going beta and snail. Will post pics in this great and inspirational thread ASAP!

So is it normal for all 3 compartments to be at the same water level? I was filling up the display and noticed the sponge and pump compartments were filling up just the same. Is that correct?

I'm thinking I must have a leak along my false wall? Never used an all-in-one design, but I thought it'd be fully sealed so the water level in the display stayed constant while the evaporation would be lowering the water level in the filtration compartments.
