Thanks :) Also filling the tank up as far as possible also helps with the flow.

A couple of years ago I was on another fish forum where a guy was just LIVID because he had kept hearing about using sponges in this filters and he bought a couple at the grocery store & lost EVERY SINGLE fish overnight!!!!

He figured the company that made the sponges should have put on there "NOT FOR AQUARIUM USE". I don't know about that, but I know I will never use a grocery store sponge!!!

But that's just me. :)

No, I don't - sorry!

Actually, I use Imagine Foam Inserts. A tad less expensive than the AquaClear ones and work just as well, IMO.

do you know any stores that handle that product?

OLF and 1fish2fish, did i do this right? Heres my setup. One scrubby/scratchy thing where the water slides out of the filter:


Then i put half a sponge in the filter, behind the cartridge and i put another little scrubby/scratchy thing right on the side of it where the intake water first reaches it. the 2nd picture shows it more clearly:



Is this good or bad?
