    I have a Spec V I'm willing to part with if someone wants to make me a decent offer. Light doesn't work anymore and no filter, but otherwise good condition. It's an interesting tank for sure. I also have the aquastyle 4 that may be missing some parts.

Have you breed fish before or are the myanmar's your first? Sorry for all the questions, when I start researching something I get obsessed with knowledge lol.
    I find it more easier to breed shrimp than to breed freshwater fish in a nano tank. I also agree that CPDs are the most expensive freshwater nano-fish in my area, Breeding Endler Livebearers (Poecilia wingei) is much easier than breeding other types of nano-fish, because they produce live young. I find that every time the CPDs start spawning, the other fish in the tank eat the eggs.

    Hi there. I have just been generously gifted a beautiful used spec v, but I am missing the transformer for the led light. Since you "hoard Fluval Spec tanks in Vancouver", I was wondering if you have either a spare transformer or complete led light with transformer ? Or would you suggest an upgrade in the lighting ? And if so, do you have any suggestions. I know that some feel that the "stock" led that comes with this tank is in-adequate for some aquaria use ...... ie. plants, but as I am planning to use this tank for breeding shrimp, my feelings are that the led that comes with the tank is adequate for my purposes.

    Personal thoughts:

    - You need to find a suitable heater that can fit in the built-in filter sump (I use the Marineland ones from J & L Aquatics, or you can use the Hydor mini ones that can be found online).
    - I have to put some fine mesh over the filter intake and grill to prevent suicidal/adventurous baby shrimp from making a home inside the filter.
    Checking out J&L's site I see that the lowest wattage Marineland they have is 50. Is this the one you use ? I would prefer lower wattage if possible. I am thinking 25 would be ideal Also, how has the "fine mesh over the filter intake" worked out with the shrimp ? Thanks, George

    The local Pet Culture has 2 in stock.
    I may have to brave the Boxing Day shopping craze for the first time in 30 years to see if I can get one.
    If I can't I may have to do another frog tank.

    210 Gallon Turtle and African Cichlid Tank.
    65 Gallon South American Cichlid Tank.

    Get this one! I have the 50W (same size) fit into the pump section.

    Hey 'guppygoerge', I don't have any spare stock LED lights to give away, but:

    Someone is selling a Fluval Spec LED light here:
    Fluval Spec V Stock LED light

    These are great alternatives or upgrades to the stock Fluval Spec V light
