I got some plants from my list! (only 1-4 stems of each):
- Ludwigia senegalis
- Ludwigia inclinata var. verticillata 'cuba'
- Polygonum kawagoeanum
- Polygonum sp. 'sao paulo'
- Rotala macrandra 'green'
- Rotala macrandra
- Rotala vietnam

Going to mess around with the fx5 a bit more when i get my plumbing supplies tomorrow afternoon. Hopefully i can also get my dad to get my co2 tank refilled in the morning.

After i get the co2 and filter all set up and working, it's time to order a bunch of plants! Woo-hoo!

Hey Philip, glad to hear your giving the FX5 one more chance to not be garbaged. My single crypt. wendtii that i got for 5$ is actually about 6-7 plants, 4 of which will probably make it. Nice list of plants though. can't wait to start trading, if i get the 75 set up.

Yeah i figured that i mind as well try and fix it since it's the only filter that i have right now. And plus, i spent quite a bit of cash to get that plumbing stuff that will only work with the fx5...

Why will only 4 of the 6-7 plants make it? lol.

Staining the cabinet a warm espresso color will give the whole system added visual warmth. I like dark furniture, and much prefer it over blond. Even red woods and stains are preferable to blond shades.

Sounds like you're going to have a wonderful experience if everything works as it should.

Please post pics when you have it up and going...

Maybe you should get a 110 gallon. It's 48x18x30.

Psh... upgrading again would defeat the purpose of downgrading, LOL.
Plus, 30" is way too tall imo.
