I have a single fx5 in a 75 and it keeps it crystal clear. It houses 18adult Trophs,10 juvies, and 15 juvy bulus.

Should I keep my Koralia on the side with the intake for circulation or the output?

How should I set up the FX6 media? I used the 2 biofoam in the top level with the bottom half matrix, middle level full matrix, bottom level matrix on top then 2 bags 250ml purigen and the carbon foam thing that comes with it on very bottom.

So here's a bad pic of my set up. I have the output on the right, and the intake on left with my rena smart heater to the right side my intake. I pointed my koralia up and gentely towards the front of the tank for surface agitation on left side. Actually more particles seem to be suspended this way rather than the koralia pointed downward. Plus the heat from the smart heater rises out of the top d/t the fact that it is also designed as an intake...which sits right underneath the koralia for better heat circulation. Another added bonus the koralia blocks the "red cylon eye of death" on the smart heater that is sort of annoying at times. I love the fact that all the gear is black like the background...I do not have to break out the flat black Krylon fusion and go through all of that again.
