I have two running on my 180G, and can only back up whats already been said. They are fantastic filters and require very little effort both in setting up and maintaining. I have always been an Eheim person before trying these, but The FX5 has changed my mind. BTW great find with that site Necro cheers.

180 UK gallon - Central American Cichlids
75 UK gallon - South American Cichlids
30 UK gallon - South American community
25 UK gallon - Hospital/ Quarantine Tank.

Just to add to this because I got a FX6 recently. Yep there awesome! but from what I hear its pretty much exactly the same as the FX5 only slightly less expensive to run. Apprently if you fancy upgraging you can just buy the FX6 spare pump unit and bolt it onto your FX5. I'd suggest checking out the fixings first just to make sure.
