Why would I need a filter?

I'm just curious, if 50% water changes are required for fry tanks everyday, what's the point in having a sponge filter?

Because hundreds of small fish = lots of bioload and it builds up very quickly. The filters are just there to keep the tank clean between cleanings.

I see, how often should the sponge filter be cleaned?

I don't use sponge filters so I'm not 100% sure. My filters are Penn Plax corner filters as seen on this page:
