Installing Sponge Filter
Posted 01 October 2010 - 11:49 PM
Can someone please tell me if the large bent tube at the top goes in the water or above the water? There are no instructions and the company I bought it from does not know.

Does anyone have experience with this and know for sure?

I would also think that the sponge would need to be submerged under water to keep the biological bacteria colonized on it. I'm sure a stream into the water may keep the sponge with water but it would be passing mostly and spreading from inside out. Instead if submerged the bacteria would be passing from the outside in.
I personally think sponge filters are great because they seem easy to clean and last a long time. Simple and easy. Although the perks to having HOB filter like Hagan's AquaClear, although it may not be the best on the market. The idea of sticking extra DIY media to help out the balance of your water chemistry as well as do other things is a helpful thing. Although many apiarists know that all that is not necessarily needed and keep to simple while saving lots of money on not buying products like that. I guess it all depends what fits your needs best.
