I have no experience with that heater .. Looks great.. However ab inline heater is even better if you want to try that route . I have a hydor inline for my 225 and thats a solid heater.

UV ? Well that's up to you and the $$ available. I love my coralife turbo twist UV

AB inline? do you have a link to that? also which model of Hydor do you have? I looked at those and I didnt see one that looked big enough.
I was looking for 1" or close inputs and outputs as I believe the fx6 is 1" and I didn't want to come down and restrict flow if possible??

I got mine from drfoster & smith but yeah same one,
But I'll admit the ribbed tubing on the fx6 confused me at how to secure the heater confidently so I put it on my API filstar XL . While it is 5/8 inch I'm still pretty sure it can be put on the fx6 safely without much if any flow restriction. I just didn't feel like figuring it out at 2am without another person there helping me lol .

nice, ok thanks for that .. yeah i think im going to pick up some replacement pipe for the fx before I even get it in, looking around a lot of folks had problems trying to add any additional components to either the 5 or 6.

thanks for all your info ..
