    Replacing sponge in Aquapod

    Hello All,

    I'm looking for some advice/opinions. I have an Aquapod 24. I want to rid the tank of the sponge they use as a sedement filter in the overflow of the tank... it just get's gross and I hate cleaning it.

    I'm thinking of filling the overflow section with LR rubble. Any have any opinions or suggestions of alternatives?

    Thanks,

    LR rubble is always good for some filtration.
    that pad is most likely for polishing water and also getting rid of bubbles.

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.

    you'll still need to make sure the LR rubble doesn't become a detritus trap or you can have a problem. do you have a skimmer or fuge ??? maybe you could grow some chaeto in the overflow?????
