    What lives in your set up? I might be wrong but I dont think there are too many people using sponges. Unless you have a triger you feed tones of goldfish to and you dont want chunks floating around!
    PLEASE SEND ALL ACROPORA FRAGS TO THE REEFSURFER

    Frank,
    Remove the sponge. You don't want any type of machanical fitration. They are bsically nitrate factories. In a fishonly tank, it's fine as is a wet/dry system, but in a reef it is not a good thing to have. Basically because of how it can affect your water parameters.

    IMO mechanical filtration is OK as long as it is cleaned EVERY DAY WITHOUT FAIL.
