Fx77 is an elementary conduit, one of the original sixteen Herschel conduits, discovered by Dave Buckingham in August 1996. After 77 ticks, it produces an inverted Herschel at (25, -8) relative to the input. Its recovery time is 51 ticks; for periods lower than 69, the first natural glider must be eaten. It is one of the simplest known Spartan conduits, and one of the few elementary conduits in the original set of sixteen.

In January 2016, Tanner Jacobi discovered a Spartan method of extracting an additional glider using a transparent pond, as shown below. As in the infobox version, a ghost Herschel marks the output location.

Alternatively, a pipsquirter or other sparker can replace the blinker-suppressing eater to produce an extra glider output in a different direction.

For period 3, the large sparker can be used.

For period 4, the T-nosed p4.

For period 5, the middleweight volcano or P5 pipsquirter.

For period 6, the unix.

For period 7, the 38P7.2.

For period 8, the blocker.

For period 14, the 34P14 shuttle.

For period 15, the pentadecathlon.
