wow spoon, thanks for that info... i had never thought of that one. ill definately use that in the future

Cool, good pick up, let us know how it performs. I've read a couple reviews on it and one that put the FX5 up against the Eheim 2080 and it performed admirably against the big E.

EHEIMJust in case you missed it.LOL. My Bad, How is it, one of the nit picky reviewers said it was a little loud and that the GPH was greatly reduced (almost by 1/2 the rating after the media and head height were added)?
