I’m playing around on AqAdvisor. What is the best way to enter info for my ACO sponge filters?  Specifically the small one, but the other sizes, too?

I assume you want dimensions to enter into parameters on AqAdvisor?

Look up "sponge filter" on the Aquarium Co Op home page.

Below the photo image, you'll see a number of other images that provide the dimensions for each size sponge. See below. Hope this helps!

Aqadvisor has an option for user defined filter. Select that and it will ask you for the capacity. Nano 5+, small 10+, medium 20+, large 40+. 

Note that aqadvisor is a useful tool but is not the end all be all of stocking levels. One issue with it is that it doesn't take into consideration nutrient uptake from plants.

@ChefConfit yes, I understand this is just a tool, etc. 😊 I’m just experimenting with it as one source of estimation info if I make some filtration changes to my existing setups.

Are you saying if I have a small sponge filter that I should select “user defined” then enter “10”?
