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 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: a porous foam block with convenient handle, activated carbon and BioMax bio rings for effective and thorough mechanical, chemical and biological filtration. The pump and filtration system are conveniently located in a separate chamber at one end of the aquarium to simplify maintenance.

and a single Betta.
Punctured a handful of small holes (around the size a paper puncher would make) in the filter tubing to reduce flow, and set it on its slowest setting so it didn't blow my Betta around the tank. Otherwise this wouldn't have been suitable.
PROTIP:The Hydor 25 and 50 watt heaters fit into the filter motor compartment and work extremely well. I had an aqueon mini heater there before, but decided to invest and get something that wouldn't burn out or fry my fish!
This has been a wonderful tank, my Betta seems extremely happy, even with the absolute minimum amount of space. Besides cherry shrimp and small snails, I wouldn't recommend putting anything larger in there.
Here are two images, one with fake and one with real plants. Currently remodelling and will update again after its finished.
Duckweed is kept, java moss flourishing, one anubia. Dosed excel and a few other ferts from seachem. The light works very well for low light non co2 systems. Tubing needs a few holes poked into and filter set on lowest setting. Tube size is 1/2" I.D. x 5/8" O.D. Silicone Tubing and can be purchased here for cheap if you need another filter tube. I couldn't find any other resources for it and fluval doesn't sell replacements so hope that helps!
*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! :)
