About This Product

Fluval Spec 5 Planted Tank Bundle (5 gallon- black)

Are you looking to bring a colorful aquatic oasis to your desktop or small space? The Fluval Spec 5 Gallon Glass Aquarium is a stylish way to house your tropical beauties, and the pros at Josh's Frogs have paired it with all the other supplies you'll need to keep a wide variety of nano freshwater fish. Depending on species, up to 6 small fish can be housed in this setup, including tetras, platies, cory catfish, otto cats, and snails.

1. Fluval Spec 5 Gallon Glass Aquarium Kit (Black)

This stylish tank has a lot going for it. From its slick integrated filtration, long footprint, and light fixture, everything about this kit looks great. It provides a very modern look, and the quality glass tank provides plenty of room for your fish to swim and grow!

2. Small Aquarium Heater and Thermometer

This heater is preset and should get your aquarium to around 78F. It can be put in the back filter compartment to keep it out of sight. Make sure it is always submerged if it is plugged in. Use the plastic thermometer to check temperatures daily. If the water temperature ever goes above 85 degrees, unplug the heater and replace it.

3. Planted Aquarium Substrate

Growing live plants starts with a quality substrate. This Aqueon plant substrate is ideal for plants to root in. It is both lightweight and will not cloud the water. The dark color will make your fish and plants really pop, too!

4. Manzanita Branch

Manzanita is one of the best woods for the aquarium. It's dense and will not break down, and it will sink quickly. This piece of wood will initially float, so just weigh it down underwater or give it several days to sink. It will release some tannins into the water, which will make it take on a brown color. This will go away with water changes and does not harm anything.

5. Vesicularia montagnei - Christmas Moss

This moss is a great beginner plant and a step up from the more common java moss, so we have included it in this kit to get you started. We also recommend you check out our tissue cultured plant selection and pick out 3-4 plants in the low to moderate range for lighting in addition to this. Tissue cultured plants are grown in a sterile environment, which means you do not have to be concerned about introducing snails, algae, etc. They also qualify for free shipping.

6. Aquatic Plant Fertilizer

Live plants will get some nutrition from uneaten fish food and poop, but these easy to use fertilizers will make sure your plants grow swift and strong. Dose the micronutrients and booster weekly and add the root tabs as needed in the substrate every few months.

7. Tropical Fish Flake Food

Keep your fish well fed with this great food from Josh's Frogs. Fluval Color Enhancing Flake Fish Food is a great color boosting staple flake food for any fish living in the mid or surface waters, such as tetras, platies, rasboras, and the like.

8. Josh's Frogs Dechlorinator Tap Water Conditioner (4 oz)

Use this dechlorinator to make tap water safe for your fish. It'll bind and remove dangerous chlorine and chloramines that can harm your fish's gills. Follow the directions on the label.
