Yes that would be great if you can post picture. I was thinking I would need to split the heater and reactor. I assume you split it with a WYE?
Split with a TEE actually. Pics below.
My budget is about 260 for the filter. I guess with that budget is the FX5 the best option for me?
Both of my fx5s cost about 250 each.
Anyone that has this filter think it will be OK with tank that has Sand?
Sand should be fine. Just lift your intake about 4-6 inches of the substrate.
Reducer bushing from 1" down to 5/8" for the TEE. I wish I had used a 1" TEE, and reduced after the split. Also, notice that the TEE is on it's side, kind of like a lower case "y".
The heater is on the open output. The other side of the split goes to a diy spray bar.
I estimate about 400gph flow through my tank with this setup. The fx5 is rated for 600+gph, but that's with no media and all stock parts. I read where someone experimented with smooth hoses and got over 700+gph. Just food for thought.lol
