  1. Default DIY Filter Media with Sponge


    0 Not allowed!
    These sponges may have been already thought of or mentioned, but def worth a re-mention.
    Scotch Brite Cleaning Pads.
    Filter Media substarte on one side, Sponge on the other. Cut to your desired thickness and insert into filter.
    Gives a different twist of transferring BB to other tanks as well. I've got two going in my TopFin20 and is working to clean the water and has BB growing.

    I've a hunch they would clog rather quickly, but I've gone sponge-free for quite some time now, so I may be biased a bit.

    I guess I should have pointed out that it is a temporary fix until I'm able to get real media.
    I had the tank running but no funds to run out and pick up a pack so I grabbed them from under the sink. With their compact size, the BB will be an easy transfer.

    Can you use them to make a DIY sponge filter? Nano tanks of course.
    When everything goes without a hitch its only then do you realize something is wrong

    That is a good idea for something quick. Especially for use as a seeding agent.
    Increasing your biodiversity increases your stability.

    You know what this tank needs? ........................ Crypts.

    Probably so, but with these they are narrow. I'm sure with the thicker more square sponges, they would make a great option.

    That's what I had in mind. Once i get the filter in there, there will still be plenty of room to keep one of the sponges in place.

    Like Fishhook said. You'd probably want something thicker. Remember, you usually run a piece of pipe down through a sponge. Hard to do with one so narrow.

    Be careful about taking things out of the kitchen to use with your aquarium, WIVES DO NOT LIKE US DOING THAT

    AND, be absolutely certain it hasn't been used, soap residue does not a healthy tank make
