I have used the Foster and Smith cartridges, and cut bulk floss to fit the frames, it worked well. I also wanted to try out making the tank "low tech", which was part of the reason behind the switch to the HydroSponges. Best comparison I can think of is it's kind of like going from a motor yacht to a nice sailboat.

i know i say this a lot but really running a HOB and also using a DIY submersible is great you get the water movement from the HOB and a you can customize your submersible any way you want to. not to mention once the initial investment of buying all the stuff for the submersible (around 20-40 depending on you) you have enough for multiple filters or to maintain one for a very long time.
