    Hey waterdog, hope I don't seem like a stalker, but I saw that you posted in a thread that you don't believe in a fishless cycle. I find that interesting, becuase it seems like a lot of people feel the opposite way. Could you tell me more about your opinion on this? Thanks :)

    Sure you can! I find it actually helps to clean out the center if you do.

    Bwah sorry I just read your article and it said to remove the airline and tubing...But can you leave the rest of the sponge filter assembled while squeezing it out? (like leave the sponge on the part the sponge surrounds that is connected to the base?)

    When you squeeze out your sponge filters in the old tank water, do you need to disassemble it? Or can you just take the hard plastic tube off and leave the rest together, including the airline tubing?

    In the event the pump stops it should stop any water from entering the pump

    Thanks wd! Also, how exactly does a check valve work? Does it stop any water from going through it? Or in the event of back-siphoning, will a little bit of water drip through?

    Commercial Sponge filters have on the box what size tank they will filter.

    For homemade DIY I look up sponge filters on the internet, find the size for the tank I am using, then cut my sponge to as close the same size as possible.

    How do you tell if a sponge filter is big enough?
