Fluval Spec is a contemporary-looking aquarium designed for small areas such as desktops and countertops. This 2.6 gallon etched-glass aquarium with aluminum trim combines style and functionality in one small package. Though small in stature, Fluval Spec is big on features. It comes with a sleekly-designed overhanging lighting system, consisting of 31 powerful LED lamps, that arches above the aquarium to provide brilliant illumination for plants and décor. The aquarium includes a powerful circulation pump with adjustable output nozzle and a large 3-stage filtration system that provides more than enough filtration for ultra clean and clear water. It also comes with all the necessary filter media: a porous foam block with convenient handle, activated carbon and BioMax bio rings for effective and thorough mechanical, chemical and biological filtration. The pump and filtration system are conveniently located in a separate chamber at one end of the aquarium to simplify maintenance.

Frequently Asked Questions
Someone complained about no hole to add a heater. Can you add a heater or is it not necessary with this small a tank? Thanks so much!
You can fit a perfectly suitable heater with a thermostat--certainly one that is strong enough for the Spec III--in the compartment with the pump. I have a <a href="http://www.amazon.com/Hydor-25W-Submersible-Aquarium-Heater">Hydor 25W Submersible</a> in each of mine; it's a little bit of a pain to get the suction cups on the clips to hold while the tank is dry, but they stick well enough once there is water in (I only use one, as it's pretty impossible to get the second placed, but as the compartment is narrow anyway, you really only need the one clip to hold the heater below the water line), and there is a cutout at the back of the lid for the cord for the pump which also accommodates the cord for the heater. If the tank is for a betta or any other tropical fish, you really do need a heater with a thermostat to keep the temperature both warm enough and stable, but you should not have any difficulty or even aesthetic issues with a 25 watt. Good luck!
Is this tank made of glass?? Not acrylic?
The tank is made of glass, not acrylic.
Does it have a top (we have cats)? About how many small fish max can you put in? Would glow fish live in here? Thanks!
Yes it does have a top, but a sneaky cat could probably knock it off. In my opinion this tank is only good enough for 1 betta, that's it. Most fish swim horizontally and this tank is taller than it is wide. You could get away with maybe 2 guppies but even then they wouldn't have a healthy swimming space. Glow fish would not do well in this tank, it's too small. Also, they would not glow because the light is not a black light fixture. The smallest tank I would recommend for glow fish is 5 gallons, and 3 fish max inside it.
