Airflow for Large Aquarium Co-Op Sponge


Recommended Posts

Hi there; very simple question. On my 65-gallon goldfish tank, I just got two new Large Aquarium Co-Op sponge filters and a Ziss airstone for each. What amount of airflow is optimal? Obviously I want to pull water through the sponge, but I also don't want to create excessively large bubbles with decreased lift. I am current running a Tetra Whisper 40 on EACH sponge filter. That's ~1.5 L/min. of air each, and the surface of the water is gently "boiling". Have people had success with that sort of flow rate?

I'm also losing some bubbles out the top of the sponge, but I think I can fix that with some minor wiggling. Thanks in advance!

Thanks, Cory!

It's really cool to hear from you personally; big fan.

My sponge filters are running exactly as suggested by your video. I had some air leaking from the sides, but by shortening the internal tubing length, I fixed that problem easy peasy! Thanks again!
