Current USA Solo does anyone have this?


Just saw this at Petco. Looks really cool. Has anyone successfully grew plants with it?

I'm also quite curious about this tank. I saw it at Petco as well and it does look cool. I assume it would be low light. I like though they added the color control like their freshwater plus fixtures. Kinda pricey though, if memory serves...

It's $100 at Petco, not too bad.

It comes with fake plants so that should tell you it's ability with live plants which is not going to happen.

6w

Seems like your typical, underpowered AIO light

Cool looking tank, but the only thing those LEDs can grow is the fake plants that come with it.

If you're looking for an all-in-one that could handle low-light plants, for a few dollars more, look into the Eheim Aquastyle or Ecoxotic EcoPico.

Just to clarify, you mean you added the Fluval Spec III lighting right?
