Fluval Spec III

I currently have a 2.5 gallon tank that is about two years old and I would really like a new tank for my birthday.

After looking around and seeing how much space I have I really like the look of the Fluval Spec III. My only concern is the filter. Has anyone had this tank before and can tell me if the current is too strong? I read the reviews and they said to put it on the lowest setting and then place some plants in front of it to slow the water down. Do you think this would work? I'm not opposed to baffling the filter either I just don't know how to do it xD

i have the fluval spec, the 2 gallon version for my betta and it has been fine with me. you can adjust the filter flow outtake which is a plus but ive seen reviews that the filter is to strong still but my betta is doing fine in the fluval spec. he loves it but I only had it for about 3 months and ive been looking for something bigger now. I would maybe get a bigger tank but the fluval spec is a great brand and tank. it is up to you. get live plants for sure tho!

Thanks! I found a thread made a while ago about the Fluval tanks and am going to do some of the modifications they suggested. I have some live plants sitting in a 1 gallon while I wait for my fish and new tank. :)

Yeah, I am putting a female HMPK in the tank so she shouldn't be pushed around too much. But I probably will put a sponge thingy over the tube where the filter pushes the water out; just to make the current nice and slow.
Thanks again!
