First time using a sponge filter and it works great in my 55 gallon. Very happy with it.
placed order on a Friday & received it on Monday,was really surprised I received it so fast. have not placed into my tank as of yet due to time restraints.
I've been doing an "overhaul" of my filtration lately and this filter has completed it. I was going to replace my current filter, so I have been running this in addition to get the beneficial bacteria established in it, but I'm thinking of keeping both. My water has been absolutely amazing and the surface of my substrate has not been so clean since the first month or so my tank was running. I am very impressed with this product and this company and will definitely continue to shop here as the prices and quality are fantastic. Thanks!
Awesome filter, i actually have the hikari filter also but like these better. They have more course material makes it better for cleaning tank.
My water has been crystal clear since I added this to my 55 gallon African cichlid tank.
Watched corys video on sponge filters wojs great will be adding them to all tanks
I love these. I have at least 1 sponge filter in every tank. For the simple reason.. the biological material is in the tank so even f there is a power loss in your house the filter still keeps the biological material alive as long as there is the smallest amount of oxygen in the tank.
I'm replacing my hob filter with two of these sponge filters. I've been running one for about a week and it seems to be working great. I liked how easy it was to set up. It didn't come with any instructions, so I watched a YouTube video on how to install it. I also bought the no clog airstone and the check valve listed on the website. I will be adding another filter this week, so will have 2 filters in my 75 gallon.
I like it, it works great! I added the no clog air stone inside the filter as well, they compliment each other.
Running 2 sponge filters in my 75-gallon Ryukin aquarium. Not a bad thing to say about them. They are quiet and simple. My water never looked so clear.
In 40 years of fish keeping I have never used a sponge filter. Trying it out on a small pond outside with my guppies. Hope it works
I love this sponge filter. I use it in almost all of my tanks! Extremely fast shipping, will keep coming back!
Loving them so far. Have two in my 55 gal. angel tank. Thanks Cory, more orders to come.
Filter works great. I used it to cycle a new tank, and it worked great. Thank you Co-op for having great products that no one else carries in store.
Came right away as usual, popped them in wah-la....they work great! Thinking about buying another aquarium 37 gallon. Will get a couple more for sure.Buy these filters, there easy and work so well....easy maintenance too. Thanks Cory! Glad I saw your videos about it.
Saw the live stream of cory raving about these filters and decided to give it a try. Have a 65 gallon cichlid tank with hob filter and water always had a bit of debris in water from fish digging in substrate constantly. Have had in tank for a week now and my water is almost crystal clear. Highly recomend these filters. Works well and easy to clean. I will be adding these to every tank from now on. Thanks cory.
I have a 120 gallon with 2 Magnum 350' s and 2 bio wheels, but my water always had a milky look to it ( the tanks been up and running about 6 months) I added 2 hydro 3' s and less than 24 hours later crystal clear water I couldn't be happier this is the first time a have used sponge filters but certainly won't be the last thank you cory
I've always used HOB filters mainly due to the fact that they were just easy for me to use. I'm extremely happy that I've found sponge filters now. They're easy to use, quiet, and very easy to clean so far I love mine
Installed in the tank and working like a charm.
This sponge filter seems to work great! I've had it running for a week now and it's doing the job perfect. My water is more clear then before and it's creating more surface movement. I absolutely love this filter so far!
I use two #3,s on my 65 gallon angelfish tank which is bare bottom along with the eheim 2236 canister filter. I use two #3,s on each of my four guppy bare bottom tanks. These are great filters thanks again cory for all your help. joe h go navy
Purchased this simply because Cory raves about these on his live stream. I have to say it has been in my tank for a week and I can see a HUGE difference in the clarity of my water. I always thought my HOB worked just fine however using this as a combo is amazing.Going forward I will always have a sponge filter in my tank. If you are on the fence about making this purchase go for it. The quality of this is great. You will not be disappointed.
Needed 4 more for the 2 new tanks I've set up.
I have it cycling in my 90 gallon with fancy tail gold fish, then i plan to put it in a 40 breeder for rams and apistogrammas once i have the tank set up.
I use these for biological filtration combined with a small HOB for mechanical filtration. I love the combination for maintaining good clean water. The built in redundancy is a bonus. Maintenance couldn't be easier.
I'm using it in a temporary 30 gallon tote for my goldfish and they love it and so does the snail! A little nervous to remove my other filter I have on it but will be doing that this week.
Have this in my 40G and its working great, clear water, quiet, doesnt take up too much space in the tank. Shipping was fast and service was great!
Shipping was fast. Works perfectly paired wit never clog air stone.
My order was shipped very fast, it has been in fish tank for one week and it looks nice and is quiet. I used the never clog stone in it. The Bristlenose Pleco likes to hang out under it and the amano shrimp like to climb on it. I wonder if I can modify it by attaching a water bottle filled with ceramic biomax and drill holes in bottle and put airhose through the bottle, so the water that is sucked through sponge and out top with air could then go through water bottle filled with biomax? Might try it when I order another next week and let you know.
I love this filter,it has a coarse sponge.Great at trapping debris and a great place for beneficial bacteria to grow!
I use this for my intake in my Fluval canister to help collect larger debris and on my power head so I have bought two of these from Cory
Easy to put together, simple to run, and easy to clean. Not much more you can ask for in a filter. Being able to install it with an air stone is a great feature to reduce noise from bubbles.
This sponge filter has done wonders for my 40g. Highly recommend this product!
I am so far loving this product as it does well in my 14 gallon tub he showed on his channel.
This sponge filter is so much better than the one it replaced. The Azoo 7 didn't have a hollow center for an air stone, the sponge is a very fine cell structure which would clog very fast. This Hydro filter is not as big around but is much taller and fits better in my 55g, it has more room under the filter so my plecos can get under it and not move it around, I have also noticed that my water is much clearer since putting it in (2 weeks), I combined this with the No Clog air stone as Cory suggests and am very pleased, I have a power head mounted above it so the bubbles get sucked in, chopped into micro bubbles and shot out towards my plants.
Just ordered hydro sponge 3 . It has been in my tank for 1week and I can already see results..... Might order a few more for pond
