The Spec V measures 20 inches. If you did get a light that attaches as the Finnex does, you would have to make another cut-out space on the opposite end of the top. I have wondered if Fluval sells replacement top covers. (?)

Btw, I also use the Aquen 50 watt heaters for my Spec V and Spec II tanks. For use with Spec II the top just has to be slightly turned. My tanks are on a windowsill, and during some winter nights when the outside temps dropped, the tanks always remained constant. Very nice :)

Thanks! I am not opposed to cutting the lid or even making a new one. Just need to figure out what I could use to cut it that wouldn't cause it to splinter or crack.

I guess my other option would be to move my Betta to my Evolve 4 and make this a shrimp tank?

A jewelers saw would do the trick well.

The 16" Finnex light will sit just over the tank section, and can sit on the lid WITHOUT cutting.

The 20" light will span the entire tank, including the filter chamber (which is a waste IMO).

These are NOT my photos, but here is the 16" light:



And the 20":

What do you guys do about the opening in the top? i am sorely tempted by the V, but I have had a recent "out of tank experience" with one of mine, and I now am a firm believer in tops at all times.
