This past weekend project..DIY Sponge Filter

I decided this weekend after much reading and favorable opinions that a sponge filter was going to be the way to go in Nippys tank. Since his tank is round and a HOB filter was not an option, I decided it had to be better than the undergravel filter and large column return tube that was included in the kit. So we shall give it a go and see how well it will work. I used the design provided by Maxwell1295 at aquariumadvice forum.

Thank you emerald The pvc is joined in an "L" shape with holes drilled in the bottom of the L where the sponge goes over. He drilled a hole on top of the bent output for the airtube to run down. I wish I could have found a dark sponge like blue or gray. Maybe after some time in the tank, it'll age in color and wont look quite as stark.
