Show me YOUR sponge filters!

Those of you with sponge filters, where do you have them in you tank? Show me pics so I can get a visual. Big, small, let me see 'em all!

Here's an old picture:

The tank has since been torn down and replaced with a larger NPT, and the sponge filter was completely hidden by plants before I removed it so it's not much use showing a hidden one, haha.

Here's a couple of my tanks with their sponge filters. Sorry I could not get closer otherwise I get glare off the glass (sponge filters are right at the back of each tank).





Here's another one of mine in a 91cm tank.

I like sponge filters, and they are all I use nowadays.

Side view of a 20G long and the sponge is for an 80G tank. The uplift tube barely fits under the water

My pictures are in my album. (sorry, my work computer blocks popups so I can't put pics here)
Depending on the size tank,which most betta tanks aren't that big, the corner makes an easy place to hide the filter with plants or other decorations. It is effective just about anyplace!

I have mine centered in the back of my 20 long. I do not have a picture here at work though. I also have it fairly well hidden with my driftwood centerpiece.

So here's the new sponge filter... its so big and unsightly :( I am happy that it's not bothering Sesshomaru though. The only thing he seems concerned about is trying to swim under it and catching the bubbles. I may have to rename him lord derpy
