In this video I unbox the Fluval Spec V a fish tank / aquarium that I have bought to house a betta fish along with some live plants.
Want to know what you will get for your money? This full unboxing shows all the contents.
Here are the contents of the box…
3. LED light – with day and night mode
4. Filter (3 stage)
5. Activated carbon insert (to go with filter system)
6. BioMax insert (to go with filter system)
7. Pump (with tube for outlet)
8. Power cords for light and pump
In addition I bought a 50w Heater (25w may do the trick) it was a Hydor 50 Watt Heater – http://amzn.to/1Vxx25J
This Fluval Spec V Aquarium is 20.5 inch long (52cm) x 7.5 inch high (19cm) and 11.6 inch high (29.5cm) and is 5 US gallons in volume. The tank is glass and has a solid aluminum frame. It also has a very neat black box compartment which houses the filter and pump keeping them out of site. The heater I bought also fits nicely into that section (did a little bit a measuring up before buying).
I was worried the heater may not work in this compartment due to not being directly in the water of the main section of the tank – however after doing some test (before adding fish) I confirmed that the water in the main section did still heat up.
