How you maintain a power filter in a saltwater? Is it the same as in freshwater?

No, I think some people treat it that way but I just use it for water polishing, cleaning the sponge under tap water every few days. I now use it as a fuge to grow cheato.

To polish my water so its crystal,

it also gives good surface agitation and can be used for much more. Hob filters are great for sw tanks if used correctly. Live rock is my biological filtration.

Is that stuff worth it? I thought about putting some in my middle compartment of my sump, sorry not trying to hijack the thread.

EDIT: By stuff I mean Cheato.

Its totally worth it if you have enough of it to actually do the job its supposed to do, the amount I have is to small but its better than the sponge I had. You can make Cheato reactors too, I hear they are amazing.

I had my sump full of different sponges and such to help mitigate but it just looks trashy so I removed them, wanted something to help and replace them.

Cheato mate, if left it will not become a nuisance but the sponges just become a dirty mess id go for it if I were you maybe put spare live rock in if its a big sump that's just what I would do though, I'm high jacking my own thread now too .

I started out in freshwater, I just made the jump into salt. The biggest difference I found was the way you do water changes and how much you need to run a reef.
