    Well I need a sponge filter for a Q tank...are there any good brand names? And seeing as the person at Petco didn't know what they are :p, I think I will have to order it online...any idea where?

    Try this one or check the site to see if one of the others might meet your needs better.



    I hope this helps.

    Here's some for $3.00 apiece. I have never ordered these, but this site is usually selling on aquabid and has been participating in weekly auctions on another board with no complaints!

    I've seen filters like that atmmachine, but I was worried they'd create too much water movement. The Q tank will be just 5 gallons. I don't want to upset the Bettas...

    I don't think they'd create much more water movement than a sponge filter, and if your'e worried you can get a 2way gang valve and adjust it to how many bubbles come out as you like it.

    Hmmm, I think I want to stick with a sponge filter. That make your own sponge filter was cool but it sounds like it would be really powerful for such a small tank.
