AC Foam Sponge Falling Apart?

You could always stuff poly-fill in a nylon stocking, cut to size and sewn closed instead of the sponge. Or use another bio ring cartridge.

I have 2 sponges and the bio rings in mine and have not had any problems.

Approximately 1.25 acres of rainforest is lost every second, destroying the ecosystem and altering global weather / rainfall patterns upon which we all depend.
