Top basket: 1 blue sponge pad, 1x 100mL package of Purigen, and a small media bag full of carbon. Fill the rest of the top basket with bio media
Middle Basket: Fill entirely with Bio Media
Bottom Basket: fill entirely with bio media.
To fill a FX5 basket, you need TWO of the fluval bio max packages.. Fluval BioMax, 500g (17.63oz) - so to setup the FX5 properly with all Fluval media, you need 5 of those 500g boxes.
That's expensive. The cheaper way is to use the link I posted in the deals section about the odyssea generic media... 4L for $20.
