Thread: My DIY Sponge filter

Air powered sponge filters work pretty well given enough time for bacterial colonies to develop. Just make sure they're large enough for the required surface area. The bottle filter is a great DYI project though.When in doubt, do a water change.

I bought a seapora sponge filter that connects to an air pump at my LFS for $10. I know it's cool to diy but it doesn't get much cheaper than that.Don't poke the crazy

yes lol one of the reasons I didn't go full DIY was because of the cheap cost. I got 5 sponge filters rated for about 5-10 gallons each for $10 total online. Granted, it took forever for them to arrive (from China) but they are completely functional and a worthwhile purchase.Tanks: 30 gal community and 10 gal shrimp/community
