Hmmm, I got a steady stream going rith now. I can tell it works since there is some debris trapped on the sides. If I open the air valve to full, it creates a LOT of turbulence. I guess what you mean is that as long as there is a steady stream of bubbles its OK.
Also, I got my sponge filter about a foot aqay from the right side of the tank since the HOB filter is on the left side. If I remove the HOB filter, would it be better to reposition the sponge filter to the center?
