    hi I’m making a diy sump and I’ve heard dollar store plastic pot scrubbies work well for filter media. But at my local dollar tree the bath sponges are even cheaper. I want to know if anyone has any experience with ‘April bath & shower’ brand bath sponge? It’s like a plastic luffa. I want to know if it has any chemical anti mildew or anything harmful to my tank. I tried contacting dollar tree by email but their site is not working. Thanks for any info!!

    You can also use sponges.

    I use the plastic pot scrubbers there cheap $2 for 6. Yes sponges too. Just make sure there chemical free. Will say on bag.
