I'm looking to set up a small 3ish gallon tank, so I'm looking for a Fluval Spec or Marineland contour all in one complete.
When the time comes to move it will be an easy take down. Ended up taking Aprils advice and bought a Fluval Spec.V 5 G very cool little tank. The upgraded led is very bright with a soft touch switch for on/off, not sure if the older ones had the switch or not, looking forward to getting it going:bigsmile: Got some water in along with a a couple gallons of sponge glop from April also some plants and planting soil. So the fish are in that I got today from April and doing fine, Stuart suggested I may have to put some fine sponge on the filter inlet to stop the shrimp from getting into the filter area, Well I had to add this tonite as the tiny Killie was in there.

I'd suggest a 5 gallon spec. Longer and still easy to
Move if you drain 2/3. I've moved
My 5 gallon spec constant. They run so well and I can add tons of fish and shrimp with no losses. I'm sure I have over 40 fish and shrimp in my spec. Tiny rasboras etc.
I rinse the sponge maybe 3 times a year lightly.
And with it being long and slim you can make a landscape with aquascaping

I had a look at the Fluval Spec. V very cool little tank and bought one, they have a improved 7000k led light system with a soft touch function switch for full on, moonlights and off, it's great to able to control the light without having to unplug it. I'll have to pickup a 25watt small heater as my 50watt eheim is too fat and a little too long. Any suggestions on what to use or anyone got one they want to trade for the 50 watt eheim.
I can. I have brand new ones.
