After you read through the instruction manual, setting up your Fluval Spec V tank couldn’t be easier—from the pet store to home set-up in no time.
All you do is rinse all the aquarium parts (always avoid using soap! soap is toxic to fish), plug in the filter, the pump, slide in the lights to the light slot and then fill in the tank.
Instructions are clearly labeled and laid out easily in multiple languages, making it simple for those who have never set-up a fish tank to properly set up theirs.
Then add a few plants, gravel and decor and you’re ready to go.

It’s sturdy, but not unbreakable.

8. Ease of Use
Cleaning the fish tank will mean removing the light source to get access to the water. Depending on your personality, this can be a hassle or not an issue at all.
Feeding should be easy: just lift the aquarium cover and deposit the food into the water.
Issues with the tank, filter & lighting will not be an issue because of the quality of parts Fluval used in this tank.
