Question Favorite sponge filters, everyone?

Would everyone like to share their favorite brand, or DIY design, of sponge filters? I am thinking about using them, and don't want to waste time and money on inadequate equipment.

Thanks guys :)

I use this. It's for my 3.5 but I needed to use a valve to control the current. It was a bit strong, though.

I like the Azoo sponge filters nice, simple, and easy to clean!

Thank you for the recommendations!

Another question, not completely off topic - is anyone familiar with the Tetra 3i filter? It came with 2 of the tanks I own, but I've never used the filters. They seem to be essentially sponge filters... Any thoughts on them?

I was also planing on ordering a few different types from them as well. What size are you planning on getting? and for what size tank?

I'm thinking I'll probably get those little baby #11's for my baby tanks, which are 3 gallons. The 11 says it's good for up to 10 gallons, so perhaps I'll get one for my 10, but I may opt for a taller one (like #9, I think it was), in hopes of slightly less water agitation, as my long finned male, Howie, is a not a fan of water movement...

Hey! Don't mean to hijack, but is this all you need for a functioning sponge filter?
