yes just read the instructions- you are diluting the chemical, always best to add it to a prepared barrel of water before adding to tank- make it part of your water change routine.

sponges are the next best thing to using nothing- i would recommend you have atleast one layer of siporax in there, and at teh very least remove the carbon and the white wool.
