Rep's Spec V


Hi all. Picked up a used Fluval Spec V. Setting it up as a shrimp tank with just anubias for plants. Plan on just using stock light at the moment. Still trying to figure out the hard scape and open to suggestions. Sorry, some reflection in the pics.

Wood kept on floating, was in one of my other tanks a few months ago but dried out too much since then. Too much snow to find good rocks so this will have to do for now.

Added some vals. Right now the pump is turned off so the plants will have a chance to root. When the pump is turned on will the shrimp be ok with it in full or should I turn it down?

I really like your layout with the rocks. It looks great.

Thanks! Turned on the pump this morning, uprooted the largest set of vals. So replanting and changing the nozzle direction a bit.

Nice! Are you sticking with rocks or will you be putting the wood back in once you soak it enough to sink it?
