The site lists two links; Also, I do not see the plastic plug listed here; I am assuming they sell it together with this PTC-13 assembly. Call zoomed for clarification.

Hi all! Thanks for all of the great advice! I am going to try this mod on my Spec V. I just ordered the parts today! Right now I am using the foam filter over the output method. It works to keep the flow down, and my betta, shrimp and plants all seem happy, but I get so much muck at the top of the water line. Will the flow from this mod help with that? Any other recommendations? I think it's a biofilm - almost oil looking (with rainbow color characteristics).

Anyway, thanks again for all of the great inspiration from this thread!

So Petco.com has the Fluval Spec III for 52.87 and then there is a free shipping and $10 off going on, if anyone is interested.

still working all the bugs out of the way i want my spec v set up. the output from the filter is the last thing i need to tackle. right now im using the sponge in the nozzle method but i really dont want to keep it that way.

however, i did figure out a ways to stop my betta from damaging his fins on the intake grill. if someone else i posted this sorry i never made it all the way through this thread.

i used the plastic mesh and made a box out of it. i cut the back out of the box and zip tied it to the grill. it doesnt restrict the water flow and keeps Rehab from damaging his fins.

Does anyone have any advice on getting rid of brown algae on aquarium decorations? Like on silk plants and other decorations. I checked all of the water condition levels with the API Freshwater Mast Test Kit, everything is normal. Even the Nitrite and Nitrate levels which is what other sources has indicated to be the cause of the brown algae. I have scrubbed the plants clean a few times and thoroughly cleaned the tank but within a week or two the algae returns.

I bought the smallest gold algae eater I ould find and made sure there were lots of hiding places for him. The color contrast between him and my light blue veil tail is very nice. http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/p...938&pcatid=938

So I picked up a surprise betta last night and had to quickly set up my Fluval Spec V. Just wanna make sure im not missing anything and doing something to damage my pump.

I have some of the hard craft mesh zip tied over the intake and a pre filter sponge over the outflow. I have the flow turned up to about medium and it makes a slow flow through the sponge that my boy doesnt seem bothered by. The water level in the filter compartment is slightly lower than the tank, but not by too much. Im keeping the tank pretty full. The pump does make some noise though... not sure if its the right noise since my only experience is a tetra whisper filter...

Is there anything else I should be doing? I know someplace in this thread it was mentioned about blowing the pump or something... but I dont have time to go through the thread since we are out with family for the holiday. :\ I can at least check this on my phone periodically. Would definitely appreciate any help so I can fix anything needed on any brief time i'll be home.
