Fluval Spec V

Anyone have this tank? My LFS is selling it for $32 and I'm very tempted to get it because for a 5g tank with filter and lid.. that's really good.

I do and $32 is more than 50% off the sale price of $79.99 at Petco & PetSmart. Make sure it is not refurbished or broken.

You should have in the box:
pump, tube and outflow jet, foam block, biomax, carbon filter, light, lid.

There is thread with ideas on SPEC AQ decorations:

$32??? Buy this tank immediately before they realize their mistake! I love my Spec V. It needs a little bit of modification for a betta (to baffle the filter, of course), but that's really, really easy in this tank ... it takes a $3 sponge.

If my LFS was selling this tank for $32, I'd buy at least 3 more without a second thought.

Yes, you will enjoy it. Tekkguy suggested using the top carbon slot for a pack of gravel as biomedia. I bought another Biomax and stick it there. So I have 2 Biomax in my block. They said you can use it to seed a new tank as in another SPEC V, hint hint ;)
