  1. Default 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.

    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!

    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!
