Fx119 is an elementary conduit, one of the original sixteen Herschel conduits, discovered by Dave Buckingham in September 1996. After 119 ticks, it produces an inverted Herschel at (20, 14) relative to the input. Its recovery time is 231 ticks; this can be reduced somewhat by suppressing the output Herschel's glider, or by adding extra catalysts to make the reaction settle more quickly. It produces 3 gliders: the FNG, the "second natural glider" and another one going SW. By using a dependent conduit, this can be reduced to 160 ticks.

In the pattern shown in the infobox, a ghost Herschel marks the output location.
