Heater Placement in relation to sponge filter


Recommended Posts

Hello All. I set up a 10 gallon quarantine tank with only a sponge filter and a heater in it. The heater is not heating up the water to the set temperature, It goes on for a min then turns off. I think it is sensing the heated water right around it and not staying on long enough to heat the 10gallon aquarium. It is a brand new Oase Heatup 50. How do I get water flow around the heater with only a sponge filter?  Will the sponge filter be enough flow to get the heater to work properly?
