Adding airstones to sponge filters

Today, i will show you how i add airstones to your smaller sponge filters with only 1 inside chamber.

So first thing, grab your sponge filter:

Then, completely disassemble it:

Pick up your chamber or cage as I like to call it and look at the bottom:

And cut those little inside spokes to remove the tube in the middle:

After that is removed, take your airline and add the tube, top piece, and airstone:

Great article! It's well written and easy to follow. Great job.
Very well written and the pictures definitely help to see the process. I just have one question though. Is there a certain size or shape air stone that will work? Or will any kind work?

I just used the smaller ones from Imagitarium. I am sure if it fits, it works.

Thank you! There is another one in the works for larger sponge filters as well. Got the pics, just not ready to type.
