What Size Intake Sponge For Tidal 55?

mgstein

So I'm about to buy the Tidal 55 for a new setup. Everything I need so far is in my shopping cart except for the intake sponge for the filter. What size do I need? I have several intake sponges for the Aquaclear 20 and 50 that I also have - will those fit the Tidal 55 intake?

Are you going to use the foam block for an Aquaclear as a pre-filter at the end of the intake tube?

If so, I would buy a 3-pack of the AC70 refills.

Check kensfish.com and place the Tidal in your basket to receive their sales price. I don't recall what Ken sells the 55 for, but I know the 110 sells for $62. Plus Ken's doesn't charge tax or s&h.

Thanks for the quick reply!

I like to buy pre-cut (round) sponges that are cut on just one side specifically to be used on intakes. They look nicer and come in black. Amazon always has them cheap, especially when buying in bulk. So I guess my question should have been - what is the diameter of the intake tube on the Tidal 55? (is it about the same as the Aquaclear?)

This is what I bought and use on my Tidal 75, Tidal 55 and Sunsun 303b.
