Fluval Spec III Aquarium Kit, 2.6-Gallon
While the newly redesigned SPEC stays true to its classic modern styling, this popular nano aquarium series now features an impressive high-output which generates 20% brighter lighting performance for noticeably bolder fish colors and plant growth.SPEC does not disappoint where filtration is concerned either, boasting a powerful 3-stage system with oversized mechanical, chemical and biological media for unparalleled water clarity.
- Stylish honeycomb design conceals back filtration area while looking ultra modern.
- Powerful 3-stage oversized mechanical, chemical and biological filtration.
Fluval SPEC is a contemporary looking aquarium designed for small areas such as desktops and countertops. This 2.6-gallon etched glass aquarium with aluminum trim combines style and functionality in one small package. Though small in stature, Fluval SPEC is big on features. It comes with a sleekly designed overhanging LED lighting system, consisting of 31 powerful LED lamps, that arches above the aquarium to provide brilliant illumination for plants and décor. The aquarium includes a powerful circulation pump with adjustable output nozzle and a large 3-stage filtration system that provides more than enough filtration for ultra clean and clear water. It also comes with all the necessary filter media for effective and thorough mechanical, chemical and biological filtration: a porous foam block with convenient handle traps large particles and debris, activated carbon adsorbs unwanted odors, discolorations and impurities and BioMax insert provides optimal colonization of beneficial bacteria and enhances the nitrification of fish wastes. The pump and filtration system are conveniently located in a separate chamber at one end of the aquarium to simplify maintenance. 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. 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.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
My set would include:
1. Deep blue 2.5G ($20 or less at LFS)
2. KollerCraft TOM Aquarium Mini Internal Filter ($15)
3. Hydor Submersible Glass Aquarium Heater 25W ($15)
4. Generic clip LED light (~$10)
5. Fluval Polished Ivory Gravel for Aquarium, 4.4-Pound ($12)
While more expensive, my Betta is going to be far happier and the small price difference is easily offset by the years he/she would spend in it.
SIDE NOTE: A lot of people are complaining about the current being too strong for a betta, the filter box thingy has a little switch you can adjust the flow of the current, i put it on low and added a pre-filter sponge and Ryba adores the feeling of the water coming out of it and he usually chills on the sponge.
*Sleek, compact design
*No hang-on filter; the back compartment contains the filter mechanics. It's safer and more aesthetically pleasing.
*Made of glass and not cheap plastic like you find at most pet stores
*The light is bright, but not too bright. When I turn it on, it doesn't bother my fish at all.
*The light and the lid are easy to remove for water changes.
*You WILL need to modify this tank to keep a betta! Set the filter for the lowest setting and put a bit of filter sponge over the intake (see my 3rd photo).
*Even with these modifications, the filtration was a bit too much for Mario (my betta) so I have the filter turned off. I think that it depends on the betta you keep and how tolerant they are of water currents.
*Doesn't come with a heater.
*You can add a heater, but we had to cut a notch out of the black plastic part to accommodate the heater's cord.
*My husband and I are experienced fishkeepers. However, the sparse set-up instructions left us frustrated and it took longer than necessary to get this tank up and running.
Despite the cons, I would recommend this tank to experienced fishkeepers. It's not really a "plug and play" set-up for people new to the hobby. I'm glad to report that Mario is a happy, active fish who enjoys the swimming room of his aquarium.
Happy Fishkeeping! :)

Decent light to grow lowlight plants, and looks great in your home, loved the cube shape.
Also a very quiet Pump!
I highly recommend it, if you want a small but high quality tank. However if you need a biger tank, there’s a bigger model from the same make (19 liters)
