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.Liters to Gallons conversion calculator

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