Fluval FX5

Any one on this forum using the new fluval FX5 - if so which media do you use and what is working best for you. I just order one from ebay and just wanted to get a little more info about it before it arrives.

I have one and love it. Currently I only run LR rubble. I like to run purigen and phosguard, but haven't had the need. I am going to move this to the General Hardware/Equipment section.

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

Which level do you run your lr rubble at and if you had to add purigen and phosguard would you put that after it goes thourgh the rubble or before? Also did you take out the foam blocks or do you use them? what about the polishing pad? And how much lr do you have in the cannister?

Thanks alot, this is my first cannister filter so I am just trying to get an understanding for what will be needed and how to go about seting it up
