    Hi. I seen your post about sponge filters. Very awesome info! I'm looking into setting one up. With the sponge, is there a formula for how much surface area of sponge per gallon of tank? I got a 5.5 gal. With a single female betta. I want to grow enough BB to keep the water good but my tank can be viewed from all sides so I don't really want the sponge to be to big and destracting if you know what I mean.

    My 75 is drilled. I absolutely love having a sump. I made it by splitting a 35 using plexiglass dividers siliconed in. The water dumps into a open area, then down through 5 layers of filter media, then up through 5 lbs. of lava rocks, then down over charcoal, then to the return pump. I also have a 5 gallon pal tied to it with tubing and a float valve for automatic top off. It increases water volume and airation.

    Hi water dog, noticed in your siggy, you have a 35 gal sump for your tropical, just wondered how well it works for you is you tank drill or hang on overflow?
