Be careful when using regular sponge, sponge can be treated with chemicals and anti-fungal agents.

Removed the gravel from Emo's tank (I really need to pick up some sand) and got him some anubias. No more fake plants, yay! :)

What i used is not Aquarium Sponge because my stupid pet store doesn't carry it. But i do think Sponge is what you should use!
What i did is, i wedged the Sponge in the outflow as tight as i could get in in there. Then i put the filter cartridge on top of it. The cartridge will not go all the way down, that is ok. Next, i put another peice of sponge in the the thing that puts water on top of the cartridge. It takes some trial and error, but now there is no water flow!

Sorry again it took so long to post!
thank you!! ill be going out and getting the sponge.

@MistersMom- I see in the first picture you have a plastic cup as a cave. I was thinking about using one as a temporary cave for my tank. Does it work work? Does it bleed color? Is it safe to use as a cave?
Great tanks by the way!

Is that the critter keeper in the reptile section of Petco? I recently bought one for a betta and I noticed you have a heater in ther. I always wondered if it is safe to use a heater in them. So there is no risk of melting?

I use the same exact critter keeper. I have an adjustable glass heater in there and it is safe. The glass on the heater is not suposed to touch the side of the tank, glass or acrylic...the suction cups usually do a good job at keeping it from touching.
