Which brand of filter?


Recommended Posts

What brand of filter did they recommend to use in an aquarium?

I already have  2 sponge filters running on one air pump and one sponge filter has a lot of air running through it and the other hardly any air at all.  They both of air stones.  Does anybody have an idea why they run differently?

Co-op sponge filters are good.  I use one off Amazon because I wanted a finer sponge.   I can't remember the brand and I don't think it matters.

As far as the uneven air, air will follow the path of least resistance.  The stones might have some variations in manufacturing, the air tubing different lengths.....

If you want even air flow, get a air control manifold that allows adjustment of each airline, or a air flow valve on each line. 

Happy aquariuming
