    Hi everyone! I’m looking to move to a sponge filter after reading about great they are for the environment and I’d like some recommendations! For context, I have a betta named Santino (pictures at the end) and will be adopting a mystery snail for cleanup purposes. The tank 10 gal (although...

    He's in a 2.5 gallon tank. I'm having a hard time finding any good looking ones on Amazon His tank came with a filter, but it creates a really strong current and I'm worried he'll get crushed up against a plant or the wall of the tank, so I decided to turn his filter off and just do frequent...

    I tried finding an answer to this but thought I’d just ask. I have a 4 gallon plastic tank until I can get a bigger one in the future. The fish store sold me a small sponge filter (about 4 inch width) but it takes up a lot of room for the current setup. I found a much smaller one (2 inch width)...

  5. Planted Betta Tanks
    Hello and happy September, My betta Sidd’s tank is finally cycled, ive been using a filter cartridge. But I recently I decided that a sponge filter would be a better choice for his 5 gallon as it takes up less space and because I am sick of spending money on cartridges all the time...

    I am hoping to move my boy Romeo from his 5 gallon Marineland Portrait tank to a 10 gallon tank. His fins are very long and he has difficulty reaching the bottom of the tall 5 gallon, and I am not satisfied with the filtration built into it. I am looking for inexpensive filters for the 10 gallon...

    So I got a 10 gallon tank kit by Aqueon at Petco for my two male Bettas. I divided it with some plastic mesh and report covers. The kit came with an Aqueon QuietFlo filter. I thought it was good but I noticed its flow was really strong and pushing my poor Betta around, so he can't swim in the...

    I purchased this filter off of ebay...it works beautifully. However, it is loud and causes bit of a current. I have an air stone, just not sure how to put it in the filter without damaging it. http://www.ebay.com/itm/171011991517?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT...

    I'm sorry if this is a stupid question. I'm new to the betta community. What other accessories do you need in order to operate a sponge filter? I heard you need an air pump. Is that it? What air pump do you recommend?

    Has anyone had experience with these two filters? Which one would you recommend? Which one works better? Thank you so much!

    Since I got a 2.5g for my new betta I will finally order a sponge filter online (since no stores seem to carry them anymore). I have plenty of pumps and I grabbed some tubing along with the tank. Depending on the time frame I may end up trying a DIY, but I'd still like to know some things. What...

    I only put tank in quotations because it's technically a kritter keeper. I currently have my male EE betta in the medium KK from Petco but I'm contemplating getting one of the large ones so he has a bit more room. It is heated and I have a sponge filter in there for him. I've noticed in the...

    Hi, I'm trying to purchase a sponge filter for two of my bettas. After doing a little research, I'm still kind of unsure what I need in order to make a sponge filter work. I know I need to order the sponge part. I think I need tubing, right? Also, I know I need some kind of power source to...

    Hi, I'm considering getting a sponge filter for my betta Severus because he has a lot of trouble with current and I feel like I'm torturing him by keeping his normal filter on. I have a few questions though. How does a sponge filter release the water back into the aquarium? Basically, how does...

    My little guy that I had for three weeks died the other night... I had him in with a sponge filter right around the time he showed symptoms of being sick, so I know the filter needs to be sterilized. I'm just not really sure how to do it. I would get a new one, but this unit is brand new and it...

    So I got a new tank for my betta and all of the needed accessories as well. Or so I thought. The pet stores near me did not carry a lot in filters. Pretty much every single one of them were waterfall types. One of the employees told me to try this turtle tank filter since it would have little...

    I have a moderately planted 10g tank with a sponge filter in one back corner and a box filter in the other back corner. Both the sponge filter and the box filter are rated for 10 gallon aquariums. The box filter is currently about 2/3 filter fluff and 1/3 carbon, as I like running carbon for a...
  19. Planted Betta Tanks
    I am currently cycling my tank, and doing a fishless cycle, and will be also slowly adding plants while I am at it. I am wanting the plants to grow as much as possible in the time before I get the fish in, and I was thinking of doing CO2 injection while the plants are new, to help get them...
  20. Betta Fish Care
    I recently picked up an Aqueon 10 gallon tank during Petco's sale, and am in the process of getting everything ready to set up, plant, and get cycling before I move any fishies. My betta and his shoal of pygmy cory buddies will be moved from their current home in my square 10 gal, and into the...
