Sponge Filter

Postby ElectricBlue » Mon Nov 06, 2017 12:09 am

It seems that most people build their own sponge filters now instead of purchasing. Can someone post the material list they use as well as a diy instructional or link to a good diy tutorial? I've tried a couple tutorials and they did not produce a very good filter. Thanks.

I'm looking to make sponge filters for aquariums ranging in size from 5 to 30 gallons.
