Product Description

Color: Black

Fluval Spec is a contemporary-looking aquarium designed for small areas such as desktops and countertops. This 5 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 37 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.

I didn't get this tank through Amazon, but the reviews on this site gave me the insight to make the purchase anyway, so I thought I should give back to the great customers who educated me.

I give this tank a 5 star rating, even considering the strong filter pump. The pump can be adjusted to a setting that is quite manageable when you adjust the swivel output nozzle to point towards the bottom and against the glass. There are quiet spots in the water, even in this 5.5 gallon aquarium, that my Half Moon Betta can hover in and look very peaceful. Plus, I put in a large piece of hollow driftwood to give my Betta a place to escape if need be. Actually, he seems to enjoy the water output (which is 1" from the top of the water line) as he often swims directly up into the stream all the way to the top of the tank. He'll do this three or four times, then pull over and rest. I imagine he's getting some fishy exercise. Reminds me of a dog hanging his head out the window of a moving car. In still water, Bettas tend to be calm swimmers, but this tank provides just enough room and water circulation to keep my Betta quite active. And he's not being pushed around, he's patrolling the tank like the Type A personality that Siamese Fighting Fish are know to be.

The construction is clear glass. I have 5 small live plants, a moss ball, smooth gravel and the driftwood. The underwater pump is the quietest I have ever had, and I've been maintaining aquariums for over 20 years. It's on my desk and I sit about 2 feet away. I hear the air conditioning, the refrigerator and conversations outdoors before I can hear this pump. Perfect for an office environment.

Great tank for an office or bedroom. Looks very stylish and the filtration system is silent and discreet. There's even a place to hide a water heater. The only thing that needs improvement is the included light. Don't get me wrong, it illuminates the tank evenly and adequately, but the way it's mounted causes the thing to sag on one end and it's not bright enough to grow most plants. Because of this I replaced the included lamp with a Finnex Ray 2 and it fits the tank perfectly!

This is a beautiful, safe tank with powerful cleaning power and we love it. That is once you get past the first 48 hours of sheer panic as it whips your betta around as it swims itself near to exhaustion, hiding in his cave to escape the blast, with even that not protecting him enough as you consider returning him to the store to save him from the fluval pump. To skip the panic and the hours of internet searching for solutions and enjoy this right out of the box, Order this along with the tank: Fluval EDGE Pre-Filter Sponge. Put the sponge over the filter hose outlet in the tank (it fits perfectly see photo below) and it will calm the water jet right down and diffuse it and your betta will have peace and clean water (pictured below and see this simple video [...]). As for the betta seeming to get "stuck" to the filtration system intake as some here have mentioned, that has actually become a feature of the tank I like. They can detach themselves just fine (offer him some food and you'll see) and aren't actually stuck. Years of keeping bettas has taught me they need a leaf or rock close to the top to rest on. This little bit of suction through the filter is even better than that because it is right near the surface so my betta uses the little bit of suction on the intake filter to suspend himself so he can sleep without swimming.He prefers it to his betta hammock! It holds him up without him having to move a fin. When the lights go out he goes to sleep by swimming right to it and parking himself there just below the surface so he can easily breathe without having to expend energy swimming up for air while sleeping. When I leave for work in the middle of the night, he's always up there out cold.Read more ›

This is my first aquarium and I read a lot before choosing it. As recommended for a newbie, I started slow with a single male betta and minimal decor: a piece of driftwood, a small Asian ceramic lantern replica for Eric Feesh to hide in, and a live plant. For those who are concerned about such things, I have not yet been to the post office to acquire a Feesh Licence for Eric Feesh.

Setup is easy and simple. I love the fact that many stick heaters (I found a Fluval branded one on sale) will fit into the space above the tiny pump so you really do have an all-in-one solution here that is very attractive as a piece of decor, not klutzy looking with a bunch of devices stuffed around or behind it. I got a highly rated stick-on thermometer that doesn't intrude visually and located the aquarium on a ledge above my kitchen sink which makes maintenance just too easy.

The amazing thing is the filtration system. I think you could throw a handful of mud in the tank and the water would be clear as glass in five minutes. OK, not really. I set the pump on medium (you choose low, medium or high) when I installed it because everything I was reading said that bettas would be distressed by too much flow. I should have set it to high. Eric often deliberately swims directly toward the pump outlet and battles the current for a while, then struts away (do fish strut?) looking all studly, as if to say "don't mess with ME, Mr. Plastic Pump Outlet Doodad!"

But I may be putting words in his mouth. Anyway, in a tank this size Eric has plenty of space to enjoy the rush of water or relax in calmer areas. Don't sweat the power of the pump in a Spec V.

But I started with filtration, then digressed. It really is amazingly effective.
