Having a cycled sponge filter is a great emergency back up if your filter pump fails or if you need to set up a qtank for what ever reason.
Thanks, i will decently get one soon. I went to my local fish store and bought him blood worms and 6 ghost shrimps as a tank mate. I have also put a split on my pump to lower the power of the filter and I took out the bubble stone and replaced it with a air hose and a sponge with string and it works like a charm. -Ω
