    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 :)

    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?

    Thanks for the comment on my little female. She was my first Betta (and the start of my Betta-addiction ). I really like your sponge filter thread. I don't know why it didn't get stickied. Did any of the mods explain why?

    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?

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

    Ok so I hate you for having the 5-gallon hex that I have wanted like forever. Reason unknown And no, I am not your wife in disguise. Maybe some of us wives think alike . I may meander to my local Petsmart at lunchtime and look at the pretty Fluval and the not-so-pretty-but-more-financially-responsible Marineland 4 gallon glass tank

    Racoon it doesn't take much. Most sponge filters you buy will say right on the box what size tank they will filter. If you look at the pictures in my tanks alb um you will see a flat sponge I use in my 2.5. It will filter up to 5 gallons. Most of then, flat or upright, are easily hid by plants in a 5 gallon tank.
