As the title says.
How do I know if my sponge filter is working ? I've just made a DIY one.
it's in my 5 gallon, however it's divided so it's in a 2.5gallon section.
The pump is from a tetra filter I no longer used. It's set for 3 gallons. However, I've been told that with the amount of power (?) it's under, it should be fine for a 5 gallon?
I also bought a 10-30 gallon sponge for it.
The pipe is very high. About half an inch from the top. I'm planning to lower it, and I will if you guys recommend I do so. If you do recommend I lower it, why? and how much lower?
It's currently not running under an airstone. It's straight from the air-tube. They ran out at the store, but I tried to do it without it anyways. How necessary is the airstone? And what will be the difference? Thank you~
