What’s the best brand of sponge filter

Tetraman124

I need a sponge filter for a five gallon to be small quiet and not much flow also something that I can hide in my plants

Aquatop has a fairly small one. For up to 10 gal i think it is. Should be able to hide it pretty easy. Put a valve on the airline and you can control the flow pretty easy.

Flow and sound volume depend on your air pump. So the filter itself is irrelevant. Rather get an inline valve for the air hose and a check valve to control air pressure.

Should be noted, i tend to get Aquatops because that is what my LFSs carry for sponge filters.

I'm using a sponge filter, a ziss air stone, and a USB nano air pump for my 5 gallon. I like sponge filter because its course and doesn't need to be cleaned all the time.

I can't say which one is the best one but I bought this one for my shrimp bowl. I got the nano size for the 2.5 gallon bowl and 2 of the medium size for my 55 gallon tank. Coarse Sponge Filter

I added the never clog air stones to all 3 of them. I like the smaller bubbles the air stone provides. If you don't mind the bigger bubbles the air stone may not be needed.

Forgot to mention, I'm running the nano size in my 5 gallon.

I like aquarium co-ops design, but I feel like the sponge is too course to trap fine debris. Tanks that I'm using this filter are really mulm-y. They are great though with water movement and I prefer thier never clog air stone over others, but I did buy a replacement filter for the mulm tank.
