Fluval Spec quarantine tank
So after having my two new mollies die and fearing the worst for my entire tank, I decided to set up a quarantine tank. I know the Spec is small, but I had already promised my husband when I set up my 38 gallon, that it would be "just one tank." (I have a history...) Anyway, any fish I add will be small, so I think this tank will be sufficient for a quarantine. Also, filter and heater are hidden and it is silent and small - so really what can he complain about, right?
Just added minimal plants, java moss and hornwort. Did a cute little moss tree with spiderwood based on some pictures I admired. I added sponge from my tank to the filter chamber. The tank is now housing a pretty female betta which I'm hoping I can add to my community tank. I wasn't planning on a betta, but she is this pretty iridescent white. Depending on the light, she can look yellow or blue. I wanted a white or silver fish for the tank.
Anyway I wanted to post, since I didn't find very many pictures of the fluval spec online. Seems it is not a popular tank due to its odd shape and plant decals. I like it though and my husband just rolled his eyes and said "I've been down this road before."
