The unique Nano design features a frosted glass background that conceals the integrated filtration system, where the powerful circulation pump pumps 40 gallons per hour. It is also designed with brushed aluminum edges and a plastic cover. Although small in stature the Fluval Spec Aquarium is big on features, including the oversized 3-stage filtration with removal handle for easy maintenance that comes with the aquarium:

The Spec includes a powerful LED light fixture that includes 31 LED lights conveniently located above the aquarium to provide brilliant illumination for plants, fish and décor with a convenient on/off switch.

Fluval Spec is the smallest of our Nano aquariums and can be used to provide a cozy home to smaller fish and to create beautiful plant displays. The addition of a few decorative aquatic snails adds interest as well and they help keep the aquarium free of algae.

Maintaining your aquarium

To ensure the well-being of aquarium inhabitants, it is essential to maintain your aquarium. At the very minimum, remove 20% of the water once a week and replace with tap water that is of similar temperature to your tank and treated with the correct dose of Nutrafin Aqua Plus.

Note: Regular replacement of Fluval filter media is essential to ensure optimum performance.The filter media should be changed alternately in order to maintain continuous biological activity. To enhance bacterial action, pour a dose of Nutrafin Cycle onto your filter inserts each time you change the media.

Fluval Spec Aquarium

Installing your aquarium

1. Thoroughly rinse the aquarium, cover and filter media, using fresh water and a damp cloth. Never use soap on any component placed in your aquarium as soap is harmful to fish.

Note: Place aquarium on a level, sturdy surface; away from any electrical equipment, direct sunlight, drafts, heat sources or high traffic areas.

2. Position filters media pump and outlet.

3. Using the Allen key, secure light unit into aquarium.

4. When filling aquarium with water, add the correct doses of Nutrafin Aqua Plus, tap water conditioner and Nutrafin Cycle, a biological aquarium supplement (sold separately)

Note: Consult with your fish dealer for proper species and fish stocking levels.

As of November 2013, the unit is still amazing. LED's going strong, pumps still works and tank is not leaking. Would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a pico tank...

I purchased this tank a little over 3 months ago, and I now have to edit my review.
Unfortunately, one LED in the light started to flicker just 2 and a half months in, and went out completely at 3 months. I contacted the company and they say they will send me a new one when they get them in again, but they couldn't tell me when that might be. I'm not sure if they were serious or if I was given a brush-off. Now several bulbs are completely out or are flickering. At this rate, within the year, the light will no longer function - please see the video review I uploaded (trying to anyway) to see what the lights are doing.
Fluval did indeed send replacement a light, and a year and a half later and it is still going strong. Fluval acknowledged that they received a shipment of bad lights, and are doing their best to remedy the situation. And I can attest that there is enough light to grow live plants in this tank. I have 2 species of Java Fern and both are growing crazily.

I will update this review again to let the public know how the company finally handled it...

I had originally bought a "GloFish" 3.5 gallon tank for my Betta. Couldn't get one that didn't have a scratched tank, so I did some more research and found this little gem and I couldn't be more tickled with it.

It is sort of small - has a footprint about the size of an IPad and claims to hold 2 gallons. The glass on the back compartment is frosted, so you can not see the equipment, a very nice feature, IMO. The glass (real glass - NOT acrylic!

I was initially keeping my betta in a wall-mounted bowl with no filtration, light, etc. That lasted about a week, and I started looking for something more roomy and easy to maintain. I found this tank at my local pet store on sale. I read some reviews online and went ahead. In my reading, the most common complaint was that the four corners each have a band of metal where the glass joins are. This isn't a problem for me, as I typically only view this tank from one angle (from where I'm sitting now). I could see if you were used to a tank with very clean or invisible joins, this might be a drawback.

My single betta loves the extra space (people tend not to give bettas much room), and I love that there's built in filtration! I don't run it all the time, as it tends to be a bit strong for his liking, but I do run it about one hour a day. This keeps most crud out of my betta's living space. The light that comes with the tank throws a fairly harsh white light, but I suspect you could switch this out for another tank-mounted light if you wanted to.

To give you an idea, the tank is big enough that I have a single 8" plant (plastic), a 2.5" diameter moss ball (real), and a single structure for my betta to hide in. Beneath all this, I have about 1.5" of substrate to which I'll be adding mini clams next week!

Very good tank for beginners (me!) or for small spaces.

This nano tank is basically without flaw, unless it is expected to function as something it isn't. It really isn't a good "beginner" tank, small tanks require more knowledge and care to maintain, not less. I think that accounts for the majority of poor reviews, especially when the tank itself is accused of "killing" a purchasers fish!
First, this is not a goldfish, livebearer, or community tank. It is too small. If you try to use it for any of those and they die it isn't the tank's fault. Two gallons is too small for the majority of commonly kept species. The one exception of course is a Betta, which some would also object to, but that's another story. Please note however, the Fluval Spec is not marketed specifically as a Betta tank. It makes a fine one with some simple adjustments however. It also makes a lovely plant only tank. With refinements, it could be a very pretty ornamental shrimp, dwarf crayfish, or dwarf frog aquarium.
For a Betta you generally need to quell the turbulence generated by the filtration system. This is easily accomplished by fitting a piece of sponge OVER the exhaust nozzle, not stuffing it inside it as others suggest. A one inch square piece can be cut from the filter block, and a small slit cut partway in it so it slips tightly over the nozzle for the purpose. It's black sponge and nearly invisible in the tank. The sponge will diffuse the flow without reducing it the way an airstone breaks up large roiling bubbles into small gentle ones. You retain the filtration rate but your Betta doesn't feel like he's living in the washing machine.
The filter seems to be the most misunderstood part of the kit, but it's a major strong point. Yes, the pump is a snug fit and requires a net handle or similar to seat it, but it will stay put.

Wish I could give a 4.5 star review, because I would give this tank an "A", but not a 100% "A+". Instead I give a 4, although a "B" is a bit low.

The imperfect rating is mostly because the instructions fall short in providing certain info, but once I figured out a few things on my own this tank is just great! It is beautiful on my shelf, with a nice bright LED light. The light is great for showing off my betta fish's brilliant color and nourishing the plants I placed in the tank. The pump and filter make the tank easy-peasy to care for, esp. since I only have one betta fish (and a few sneaky snails). The black wall between the filter/pump and the living area of the tank very nicely hides the guts and mechanics of the tank and allows a minimalist, uncluttered, and (depending how you decorate) natural appearance to the tank. I really recommend this tank for a betta/siamese fighting fish especially; its just the right size!

Two important things to note!:

1) The instructions didn't seem to match the parts precisely. There may be a variance in product but its most likely that the illustrations simply do not depict the power cord attached to the pump for some reason (which is silly, where else would it get its power, batteries?). When installing the pump, part of the power cord must be submerged along with the pump, and it requires a bit of "wedging" to get the pump and its cord down in its slot. It didn't look quite right to me, especially because the illustrated instructions didn't depict the pump as having a cord at all, but I shoved it down and it works fine. Feels weird running a cord through water, but it is perfectly water safe. The tube of the pump required the slightest bit of bending/twisting to fit into place, but the water moves through it fine.
