I have this odyssea filter- it is rated at 2600 l/hr. it has great flow rate, but maybe I'm too used to canisters with baskets (not find of my eheim for that reason). It's not the most convenient for changing media, but I'm considering filling the bottom half with bags of matrix.
It's supposed to be a similar design to the fx5. I wouldn't know.
What I can tell you is that every time I take off the lid (to clean, or more likely, rescue fry) I end up with a slight leak from one of the red shut off valves- always the intake. I fiddle with it and eventually it stops, but I don't know why it does that or what it is I'm doing that fixes it.
It came with no information whatsoever
