iv had a fx5 that whent bad on me so I looked into getting a new motor for it as it would be cheaper than a new pump .

since the release of fx6 I wondered if a 6 can be put on a 5 ,so whent down to [MENTION=2383]ageofaquariums[/MENTION] and ben ordered me a new motor . so after getting home to day I just had to see if it would fit ,so here are the pics and info

the boxes label was a good sign that it would work

the smaller size housing makes it a lot simpler to screw up
