Tank a look - that once glorious large sponge filter has been reduced almost completely by mystery snails.

Does anyone know what material that sponge filter might have been made out of that they ate it? Is there any alternative materials that sometimes go into a sponge filter that the snails will not likely eat?

Thanks!

I would be more concerned with why they ate the sponge filter. Are they getting a proper, varied diet? They were probably eating food that got sucked into it, and went a bit overboard, but if they did that, I would think they're just really hungry. I keep mysteries in 3 different aquariums, all with sponge filters, and not one of them has ever been munched on? What do you feed them?

they were probably trying to eat the stuff that was stuck in the sponge and just ate everything, including the sponge.
