The Spec is up and running! Spent last night getting the Spec all set up and now it is running with heat, light and filtration. It has Seachem's Flourite as the substrate and I planted some Dwarf Hairgrass
in the front and some Needle Leaf Ludwigia
in the back. I'm hoping my light is powerful enough for the Ludwigia, if not I've got an 18 watt Coralife Mini Aqualight that I can mount up on the Spec. Here are the pics. Enjoy!
Rinsing the Flourite. __ Impeller (Modified) ____ Moded Impeller in Pump
Flourite in Spec. _____ Another angle _ Filling!
Filled! _______ Dwarf Hairgrass.
The flow is still pretty strong even with the impeller sanded down so I'll probably either rig up a spray bar to the outlet or sand down the blades of the impeller even more. I can't wait to get Artemis in here!
