choosing sponge filters

Hi,

Can anyone recommend a particular sponge filter to buy in bulk? I am setting up my fishroom, and plan to use air to move and filter water.

I saw this on ebay but really can't say if they are good or not.
LARGE AQUARIUM WEIGHTED BIO-SPONGE FILTERS BREEDER - 10 - eBay (item 170236489068 end time Jan-21-11 10:54:21 PST)

Thanks!

I use Azoo because a couple of their sponge filters suction cup mount to the back of the tank, they also have the standard round weighted styles. Lustars are the other good one.

Are you going to use one big air pump to run the room?

Yes. I plan to get a linear piston air pump, as the number of tanks grows.
However, I want to start seeding some sponge filters in my established 75g tank right away using a smaller air pump.

I am considering this pump: http://www.jehmco.com/html/lph45.html
or this one: http://www.jehmco.com/html/lph26.html

I would do one of the pondmaster air pumps. We ran the whole freshwater room at the shop I was running with just one of the 100s. They are unbelievably quiet and very reasonably priced.
