Kurt - I do have an extra sponge in the sump ready for the qt
. I did set up the qt
that way in the beginning too, borrowed a prefilter off the pump in the sump. It was hindering our aeration anyway. It just seemed like a lot of effort getting all the equipment and water downstairs for us to take it down after a few weeks. Maybe this winter when the heater would be working harder we might take it down. Being new at all this I do worry about the water quality in the qt
with the quick set up. Should I relax and trust that it will function as well as the main with the well seeded sponge if I should need it in the future?
