Aquarium safe silicone. Let it cure for 24 hours or more.

Sponge filter

Here's one I haven't used yet in pieces so you get the idea, if you silicone the pvc cap to the tile it makes it so you can remove the tube and sponge for cleaning.Click image for larger version

Very good idea. Basically my idea was your idea just a little different. Rather then splitting them up Into 3 separate . I was thinking 3 holes in 1 sponge. Wasn't thinking about having to sink it. You had a good idea there. How do u go about finding safe silicone for an aquarium

You could find it at most fish/pet stores or you could get it cheaper at Home Depot. Most like I did use this one.
