Hey :) just set up a new tank recently ( 90cm * 30cm * 30cm ). I intend on using a double sponge filter but I'm not sure if it's good enough.
This is the type of sponge I'm planning to get. plus some bonus photos of my tank :) only done the hardscape so far and the light is only temp.

A lot of people report good luck with sponge filters. Personally I’m a fan of the Cascade series. The 600 would be a great one for this setup.

IMO these filters go through more water per gallon

Beings its a long tank have you looked into the corner sponge filters? You would want 2 of those.

is there any other alternative suggestions you have. Because if possible I would like to leave on end empty without and filters on anything and just keep everything on the end that has the bulk of the hardscape

I wonder if going either under gravel or a matten filter would be more aesthetically pleasing with your setup. If your wondering my thought on the single sponge filter I don't think its going to give you enough flow in such a long tank. Hence the 2 corner ones.
