Just wondering have you setup your FX5 yet? For most part I have same tank, 48,18,25. I have FX5 as well. Trying to decide if I will need to build a spray bar.

I'm about to set it up in the next day or two. I'm going to place the intake and outtake on the same end. I'm just not sure if the output will be to much for my army of tetras and danios. You can turn down the flow on the intake and outtake on the fx5. If it is too much my backup plan will be a spray bar
Cool please keep us updated, as I will be setting mine up in a few weeks as well.

What did you ever do about inline heater?

I think I have decided to just go with a spray bar for my FX5. It going in 90G marineland tank, that has black painted back ground and I will use same color. Now to drill holes in PVC, for that matter get them all in same line. ha ha

I think it trial and error, and depends on where you like input/output for your tank, also what looks best to you. I have realized we can all try it as others suggest, but until we see it working is when we will know what works for sure.

Let me know what size pipe you go with and what you attach the pipe to the fluval hose with :)

I may build one aswell just to try it out. Would you shoot the water straight down or sideways to it ripples the top water?
I went with 3/4 PVC. I would have rather used 1/2, but I don't think the fluval hose would work with the 1/2

Going to build it this weekend, maybe, wife and kid just came down with stomach flu, so maybe not. :icon_conf
