Hi,

I am starting to put back together an old 65gallon tank. I want to use a Fluval FX5 filter. I also would like to use an inline reactor and inline heater. Is tthis possible with the Fluval corrigated tubes?

Anyone had any experience?

Thanks

I'm not sure you'd be able to fit the corrugated tubing onto a reactor but I'm sure someone will clarify.
Failing that you can get tubing connectors that dont restrict the tubing so you could always go from the tubing you have to normal pipe and then to the reactor.

Good question. I've considered doing the same myself.

I understand it's possible to obtain reducers to go from the FX5 hose to 16mm, so that would work.

I asked the same question before, the jury is out!

I wonder if it is possible to change the hosing to ehiem style hosing.

I've just found out that you can swap the hosing to non corrugated hosing. This is fine as long as the seals are tight.
