This sponge filter was absolutely fantastic!!! I am 100% satisfied and happy that I bought it. Will definitely be buying from Aquarium Co-op for everything I need.
I never realized how much my hob filter sucked up. No wonder I went through so many filters. This filter pulls all the trash and uneaten food to it. My fish, shrimp , pleco love cleaning the filter. I have used under gravel filter for years. NO MORE. LOVE that it's permanent and you just clean them with aquarium water as you replenish the tank. Works well in my 40 gallon tank. VERY satisfied. Great service, quick shipping. Love your you tube channel. Thanks for an overall positive experience. Ordered live plants today.
The filter works very well. It was definitely a large filter which works perfect for my cichlid tank
I love these things. They really do polish the water, and I figure if I am going to run an airstone of some sort anyway, why not have it also filter the water while I am at it? I do make a bit of a modification to my sponge filters by cutting out most of the center material in the plastic inside the sponge. I then add a fine bubble air stone to the air line and run it that way. You have to leave a few of the spokes at the bottom longer when you cut them so it will hold your air stone in there, but it completely eliminates the glug glug noise and still works fine to pull water through.
I have either sponge filters or Fluval HOBs in all my tanks. As always, the tanks take a while to cycle, but with the sponge, once they've cycled, I have beautiful water and healthy fish. What more could one ask for? Grateful to Cory and the gang for bringing this new hobbyist into the fold. Never knew I needed fish...but I guess I do! :)
