Yay! Another sponge filter convert! lol Funnies aside, another bonus of sponge filters is that if you have a lot of power outages in your area, you can get a battery-powered air pump so your tank will still have filtration while the power is out.
XD Yay for the sponge! I looked at prices and stuff and watched multiple videos of that stuff and it was awesome! I think it's pretty cool that you can make your own filter and its better than the ones they sell. (knock on wood) We don't normally get a lot of power outages around here, but of course then again it does help that my mom works at the for the power company :D Oh and speaking of the filter...I noticed that AquaClear sold smaller packs of the foam and the biomax do you think the smaller stuff rated for the 5 gallon tanks should be fine? (Probably a stupid question but I just want to be sure)
My 55 gal is my goldfish tank, so I need to run the heaviest filtration on it that I can. I think I have some decent pictures of them under "My aquariums." I was trying to wait for the plants to grow in before I get more.
I've just got two right now, but I can have up to 4. I'm having trouble keeping the water quality good with just 2, so I'm going to wait a while before I add any more. I've got a red ryukin and a calico veiltail. Both are around 5 or 6 inches in body length, but the veiltail has another 6 inches in fins behind her.
