This begs the question: when doing aWC, siphon out the fuge or leave as is as pod food?
If it were me, I would clean the sponge when doing a WC
, rinse it with old tank water. This will get the bigger pieces of gunk off, but will not destroy the bacteria. As long as the pods
can navigate through it, keep using it as a bubble trap.
