    I would buy it solely for the biological filtration but I think its an added benefit that it has the compartment for chemical filtration.

    sponges are very hard to care for, and only to be used for for filtration

    I guess putting a sponge in aquarium water and swishing it around is very hard now?

    I *think* shes talking about sponge filters (actual filtration machines)? Which are okay and easy to use/maintain. Are you thinking of SW sponges (like the animals for the advanced?) :p . Or am I missing something? :)

    If you think sponge filters are hard to use then that's a problem. They are not. Highly elite lol? Bolonga!

    They are real good filters and the price is right. Sponge vs HOB ? hmm what size tank ?

    I'm just saying in theory, like vs an aquaclear

    Tbh, it seems to be a regular sponge filter? I've been googling around and can't find where the chemical portion plays in (like, where you can out something chemical in). But I think it would work fine like any basic HOB for basic filtration; some people don't even run chemical filtration anyhow. I wouldn't rely on them in a heavy/bigger tank; but in something pretty small, or with fry, it would be good

    Yeah, I think as just basic filteration it will do fine, maybe not in heavy filteration

    I think it would be a nice sponge filter; its a lot larger than most I've seen and looks to be a pretty nice design. Wonder who manufactures it?

    The aquaclear IMHO is the best HOB filter made and sponge filters like you post aren't in the same league. But, depending on the tank size the sponge will be more than adequate. I have two HOB filters modified using twin sponges like you post, they are mounted to the intake tubes. The tank water is crystal clear and the media in the HOB stays clean.
