I'm a big fan of the little USB air pumps to drive sponge filters, and on most of my tanks I've taken a plant weight, bent it into an S-hook, and used it to hang the filter from the back of the tank near the sponge filter. By doing that you only need a short piece of air line, the pump is out of the way, and it's high enough that you don't need a check valve to stop backflow in case of a power outage. Hopefully I explained this adequately, but if not I'll try to remember to post a picture this evening when I get home. I did something similar but I have had airline work loose over time before so I added a check valve. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
