Looks good. Can't remember if you mentioned this, but you can add in some gravel or rocks to empty part at the bottom to help weigh it down.

Great idea! I have a rock sitting on top of it but the other way makes more sense thumbs2:

I have box filters that are basically the same setup as the sponge filter you created, they tend to need some weight in them to keep the buoyancy in check. Here's a link to what one looks like http://www.bestqualityfish.com/images/Box%20filter.jpg Always nice to see more folks using sponge filters, it's one of the best and easiest ways to get biological filtration and gets overlooked too often these days.
