THey were causing nitrAte build up.
I can't add the sponges back to my FX5 unless I got dig through the dump! I can see the benefit for keeping them in, but I run Purigen in mesh bags and that seems to catch plenty of stuff too.

For me, something else that needs to be cleaned. And that's the last thing I'm looking for
