Fluval Spec 16 Gallon

Just picked up one of the new Fluval Spec 16 gallons.
I love this tank.
It has great dimensions, and there is a ton of room in the back chambers.
This is going to be a lazy tank, no CO2, no ferts.

It's ideal for Crypts, @second.

If you ever find that it's just a bit too much light than you'd like (doubt you will), it's easy to cover the LEDs with a piece or pieces of fiberglass window screen material to decrease intensity a bit.

Thanks somewhatshocked
I sometimes use plastic mesh from hobby stores to difuse or give a night time look to my tanks when i want to tone things down. For the spec 16 i was thinking of trying the Fluval Led lamp timer which has dimming. That is if it will work with that particular light
