Cool Strongly Suggest DIY Sponge filter.

I just made one in the matter of 5 minutes and it works great, better then my intank filter.

If anyone would like to know how to build it just post a reply here and I will post what I did.

Ha ok, well I just actually put all my fish to "bed" (Fed them and shut off all the lights.) But i'll be happy to take some pics and explain with them how I did it step by step.

Check back in around 12-1ish central time and it will be posted.

As soon as I get to the petstore i'm going to buy another strainer thing and then I can take pics as I am building a sponge filter so you guys can understand better. Sorry for how long this is taking, my parents hate driving me to the petstore all the time lol. So they only do it every once in awhile. Only around 7months till I can drive by myself.
