    Default DIY Sponge Filter


    0 Not allowed!
    I just watched a video of Joey making a DIY sponge filter. In the video he says that for a sponge that's 4 inches x 4 inches x 2 inches, you'll get approximately 30 gallons of filtration. I'm questioning that since the block of foam he was using was bigger than that.

    Is that the correct rule of thumb? I'm looking at maybe making my own this weekend.

    Thanks!

    It depends how much fish you put into the tank.
