In the meantime I love everyone's pics! Anyone else have any or updated ones? I am eBay shopping to find a few more plants while my wood is leeching! ;)
congrats, cant wait to see pics.

You guys have to stop posting in this thread. It is making me drive to Petco and buy a Spec.

I am weak.

Hi guys!

Love my Spec V, so much that I am considering a Spec II.. but I was wondering if there is anything comparable to the Spec II? I don't think so, but thought I would ask.. I don't think anything else has a nice and tidy overflow setup.

and also! How do you guys remove the hard water stains when the water evaporates? I tried a paper towel and boy, was it a pain to just scrape a little off..

Hi Dc2, I have my V and a II together. They look very nice alongside each other.

SPEC III would be nice. You can use an algae cleaning sponge to rub it off.

Okay, got my spec 2.. The first one the LED was a dud spo had to exchange it. What kind of heater can I fit in the filter tube side? I have an Aqueon 50 watt in my spec v, and tried to fit one in the spec 2 but it was too long by a few inches (9 inches) I would like to keep the same clean look in my spec 2.. What heaters are you guys using in the filter tube side??
