I'm freaking excited for you too, (even if I am dying of envy, its only in the drooling because I want it bad - sort of way.)


I wish I could find a deal close to that up here.

Do they have flow control ?

Cool that's one thing out of the way.

Thanks man.
One speed. It comes with a rubber attachment for the outlet which has two plastic directional pieces you can move to direct the water.

You can see the outlet on the top right of this video:

This is from my 75 after I installed the Fx5. At this point I still had my HOBs running so the bacteria could migrate so the flow might be a little disturbed, but it creates a great flow now they're gone. The directional pieces work well.

I hope you've got some good helpers to add the rest of the stuff. I spent most of last year on a wrecked ankle (no breaks, lots of tears) and I struggled with maintenance on my three small tanks.

Just keep it here. You've got a good start already.

Surgery really slows things down, but it really helped in my case. I tore three or four tendons though, no breaks.
