Interesting filter

Has anyone ever looked at/used these? An interesting idea. And you could use it as a divider with a little reinforcement. HUGE are to house bacteria.

Interesting take on the HMF! I've wanted to do the regular HMF for a while but never really got around to it. Of course it doesn't work as fantastically with smaller tanks like 2.5 or lower, it still works but I prefer a regular Azoo mini HOB to it regardless of area to house bacteria. HOWEVER, this is fantastic for tanks that are larger and for fry housing but for a single betta, all that area is a waste of space since they don't produce much waste.

This would also be simple to make and cut to size yourself, if you bought the right foam. Foam cuts like butter with one of those electric turkey carving knives.

Yup, just need some PVC piping, an elbow and an outlet for the water flow preferably and an air pump/air stone and you're good to go ^_^ still, it's not practical for the single betta but for fry and larger tanks with lots of fish, it's a great innovated design!

I am thinking that would be an awesome divider! And not too hard as a DIY project. Am a little confused regarding the submerged pump (I always thought they were all external other than ones built into an interior filter) but then, I haven't really looked much at pumps. I like the divider idea, because not only can they not see eachother, but filtering both sides is a non-issue.

Thanks for linking it :)

Does anyone know where I should look for picking up this type of sponge material? I am not seeing anything at aquarium supply places or Home depot.

I was going to order it from this place, because it's actually pretty cheap, but the shipping doesn't really make it practical.
