Thread: Problem with Aquaclear 110

Yes they can. I have 3 of the AC110. Had that problem with two of them but both of those filters were in a tank that had plant substrate in it. The dust from the substrate would clog those sponges up in no time at all.
This subject has come up in here before and it's really not all that uncommon. I used to set a big rock on my lid, too, or the lid would get knocked right off by the sponge and bio-max rising up and pushing against it. This had nothing to do with the leveling device........two different things.
PS......Pre-filter sponges keep the sponge in the AC cleaner, too.
