hello! Im looking to buy a sponge filter for a 10 gal tank, it will first be use to raise betta fry. Then, when they will have grown ill reuse it for my make betta. I have a tetra whisper filter, too strong for the fry. Which is why i need that sponge filter. I saw one good for up to 10 gal, and one good for up to 60 gallons. To my eyes, only the size of the sponge change, the strengh of water flow will be through my air pump, right? So i thought of getting the up to 60 gal sponge filter ... is it a good idea?

Thanks for helping

Nothing wrong with that. It's good cause if you decide to upgrade to a bigger tank you don't have to buy another sponge.

I have a 40g sponge for my 10g.

It shouldn't...but keep an eye out just in case, fry are still weak early on.
