Not to hi-jack the thread, but I'm in the same boat. I'm getting ready to setup my 75 and found an FX5 on CL. I called the person selling it and he said it's only about 3 months old. He's only looking to get $175 for it. I'm thinking of offering $150.
I searched the forums and some people said an FX5 is a little much for a 75 gallon. I'm going to do a medium planted tank, low tech plants. The plants are probably going to be; Amazon swords, Wisteria, Vals, and probably some Ludwiga. I might get bashed, but I'm going to try and put the 3 convicts I have in my 29 currently into the 75 with the plants. I have 5 Java fern on a piece of driftwood in my 29 now and they don't bother those plants or dig any of the gravel. Thoughts on either subject?
Thanks in advance.
temporary tanks for the time being...
