Sponge filter problems?

Has anyone had any?

I've not used them before, so it'd be handy to be prepared for any potential problems. :)

Hmm. I've had no issues with mine other than the suction cup falling off and it floating to the surface of the tank and not working properly

Same here but that's for the ones that attach to the side of the tank.
The ones that sit on the substrate are fine.
I never had any problems. As any other filter, you want to rinse them in old water every few months so the water flows better.
Sponge filters are great and I think should be used by every one :)
With one pump I can filter 3 tanks... I think it's great!

Thanks Mo & vilmarisv! Good to know there's not many issues.

And ooh - I like the idea of running several filters off the one pump! My pump could certainly handle that.
