Thank you for checking this. When I unplugged it from the wall, you could really feel it on the side of the adapter facing the plug in. I will call Fluval and see what they say. Even when I turned the light off but left it plugged in, it was still warm, hence the reason I think it could meltdown or burn my house down

I'm getting my son a Fluval Spec V. I really like the modern look of them.

Thanks everyone for all the info on the mods.

George, that is worrisome about the light. I just bought a spec3 this evening, and I'll test the light and get back to you. I also have the specV, and the light plug gets warm but not burning hot.

Fluval Spec V up and running

Well my 7 year old picked out the decorations but I got his tank up and running and starting to cycle.

^ Cute tank.

Looks like your lighting fixture is drooping near the end? Try tightening the screw and it should straighten right up.

Thanks! I was wondering about that.

No problem, hope you got it all straightened out. It would suck if you lost the screw xD

Are you planning on adding any live plants in there?

This is my Spec.

Before:



After:



Kinda preferred the Before tank though :o
Anyway, all those plants in there thrive and are a nice green colour, as you can see. (Except for the Red Flame Sword, but that's normal xD)

Really disliking the Cabomba though.

Found the screw right away and it's fixed. Thanks again.

That small plant in front of the stone guys mouth is a live plant.

Hope this doesn't count as resurrecting a dead thread, but I just bought a Spec III. The fish should arrive in three or four days. I've conditioned the water and added some API Quick Start. I think the cloudiness might be due to the Quick Start having accelerated the cycling, and should be gone soon.

I'll be moving to college on the 16th, but I don't trust the college mailroom to notify me when my fish arrives by mail, so I'll be acclimating him in this tank, then packing up the water, sticking him in a fish bag, and driving him up to Oregon. I hope it's not too uncomfortable for him!
