Adding air to a tank (hypothetical)
If I wanted to add air bubbles to a tank, would there be any reason not to do it via a sponge filter?
It just seems that if I'm going to add air (for whatever reason) might as well throw in some nice filtration to boot.Always remember, Goliath was a 40 point favorite against David. ~ Shug Jordan

I would go right ahead and add the sponge filter! It's extra filtration, extra oxygen, and sponge filters are great for building nice bacteria colonies to keep your tank nicely cycled!Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn. ~Chuck Clark

Sure, why not... You're going to be running an air pump anyway.

That's what I figured, just hadn't seen it discussed and wanted to be sure I wasn't missing something here.
I was just thinking of ordering one of these:

An added benefit is that you will have a cycled sponge ready to use for a quarantine tank if necessary.

Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.
A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

I keep sponge filters in both my tanks, two in my discus tank which gets massive water changes. Sponge filters are awesome!
