Sponge filter in fry tank.

So I was able to acquire a sponge filter last month, but never used them in past spawns before. I know it creates alot of turbulence in the water just by nature of how it works. I always used HOB filter w/ a prefilter sponge before in past spawns. My fry are about one week old now....I'm tempted to crank on this sponge filter....anyone object? :)

I start my sponge filter after the first feeding when the fry begin to free swim. I us a turbulence control to keep it to a small, gentle bubbling and slowly set it higher as the fry can adapt...

Yeah, I think I'm going to turn this thing on. It's been sitting in their tank ever since the spawn but I've kept it off all this time.

I did the same thing... I had my sponge filter in the fry tank on standby mode until they were about 4 weeks old lol. I use a valve to control the flow and its working well. Enough to create some water movement but not so much to stress the fry.

I have it on early in their lives - as mentioned above, I also use an air control valve to keep it at a minimal.
