Add a stunning freshwater aquatic environment to virtually any space in your home or office. The Fluval SPEC Desktop Aquarium Kit may be small, but it is big on style and high-end features. Plus, the aquarium is extremely easy to set up and maintain. The Fluval Spec Desktop Aquarium features an integrated 3-stage filtration system, beautifully disguised with frosted glass that sits in a separate chamber for ultra-simple maintenance. The Fluval Spec Desktop Aquarium also includes a clip-on light with powerful, energy-efficient LEDs (light emitting diodes) that highlights dazzling color in your plants, fish, and décor. Better yet, the LEDs in the fixture use minimal energy and create virtually no heat. The Fluval SPEC Desktop Aquarium Kit features a black base with aluminum trim that complements any setting.

The Fluval SPEC Desktop Aquarium Kit boasts quiet operation thanks to the built-in 3-stage filtration system powered by an adjustable-flow circulation pump. A large Foam Filter Block traps particles and debris for exceptional mechanical filtration. Innovative media niches secure an Activated Carbon Insert and a BIOMAX Insert in the Foam Filter Block for space-saving, layered chemical and biological filtration. This over-sized filtration system streamlines maintenance and creates a clean, clear and healthy environment for aquarium fish.
