Talking Fluval Spec

Anyone else excited about the soon-to-be-released Fluval Spec? It looks like it will be the most gorgeous 2 gallon ever!! I think it's been released in the UK, but not in the US or Canada yet. It's got a filter, lighting, and a lid to prevent jumping while still being open. All while looking beautiful

Has anyone else been interested in this tank besides me?

I really like the look but knowing fluval they will sell it for a lot of money and its just not worth it.

I know fluval's a bit of a rip off, but it looks so nice, it's hard to resist!

I like the fluval flora better and its bigger and comes with a co2 kit for plants.

Yeah, I really liked that one too! But I've never grown plants before, so I'm not sure if I would like it. Although I did think the Ebi looked really interesting, it's a tank designed for shrimp!

I did see the Chi for sell for 50 or 60 dollars at my local pet store, but I didn't think the filter looked like it was powerful enough for that big tank! And no lid....

Well, it's not my taste. But if you like it, then you should save up for one. :)

Personally, I would buy a larger tank from another company. Then again that is my opinion and I don't care for the looks of this tank.

I suspected the Chi was bad, there's no way that waterfall/filter thing can handle that tank!

I wish I could have larger tanks, but in a dorm it's difficult. I don't have my own bathroom either, so water changes can be challenging! So for ease of care, I kinda have to stay with the smaller tanks... My betta is happy to be in a 2.5 gallon instead of a bowl though!

Maybe I could save up for that 2 gallon and get another betta.... Christmas is coming soon too!!!

Ah dorm life, I remember that.

When I was in college I did have a Betta. He was kept in a Kritter Keeper type tank. I do understand the space and bathroom issues!
