extremely easy way to baffle a sponge filter



take a clean plastic ring about 2-4 inches in diameter (i used a linking-ring toy, but anything circular and plastic will work) lay it on the surface of the water and slide the airline down through it into the filter tube. now, when the bubbles hit the surface, the current will be held in by the ring, and you'll only experience slight ripples from the ring itself moving.

Ahh, the picture helps enormously!!

I've been wanting to try sponge filters (I've got at least fifteen or twenty bubblers from years ago...it's been making me crazy that I can't use them for anything!) but I was having trouble figuring out a way to baffle them. I'll definitely try this!!
