    Probably a stupid question but....
    I finally brought myself a sponge filter but now it is here I have no idea how it works. It is a blue one that sits in the corner, weighted and has both a small and a large tube.
    I know that my air pump is supposed to attach to the smaller one but what is the big one for? :;dk

    the small tube (from air pump) pushes are into the big tube (into tank), this creates a suction, that will pull debris from the water into the sponge.

    No need to feel that way. I looked it up before giving my explanation. Just found a picture for the visual people (like me).

    btw.. Welcome to Fishlore!
