FX-5 Media set up?

Recommended Posts

Just picked up an FX-5 today.. Just need some advice on what media i should run in it,and in which order?

It will be going on a 6x2x2.5 with Americans.

I have bought Fine Filter and Water Polishing pads for it and have 2kg of Purigen on its way.

Is there any other 'must have' media?

After talking to slot of people and alot of reading older threads, I wouldn't go with fine pads in a fx5 slows down the flow rate quit dramatically, personally I'd go with course sponge, matrix/scoria/noodles and purigen/macropore, using fine sponge slows down flow rate but the pump is still trying to pump at the original rate therefore over heats, as I was told from AOA
