what size sponge is that? It just seems a lot bigger than the normal small 5 gallon sponge.

OK, just seemed big to me.

It's no problem. Did you put a control valve on the airline so you can regulate the flow?

I did get the control valve. it came in a pack with a few and some splitter thingies and suction cups. I figured out how to install the control valve quite easily and I have it all working. I'm proud of myself lol. I just wish it were smaller. Now I'll just HAVE to buy a bigger tank for him... to fit the sponge lol XD

Thats a pretty big sponge filter for that tank. Might want to look at some smaller ones. They are pretty cheap and the ebay ones do just fine. I actually bought a pack of 4 double sponge filters off ebay for 10 bucks. I figured I could keep one in my tank and I have 6 spare sponges if the ones in the tank ever need replacement, or I could use it for other tanks I get in the near future. I'm actually watching a set of 6 smaller filters, meant for bowls and what not now, for when I get my 2.5 gallon bowl.
