The sponges tend to collect alot of detritus and debris. I don't use them unless absolutely neccessary- like to protect a nearby soft coral or something. If your just referring to the plastic cover keep them. They'll save some inverts like shrimp, anemones, etc. HTH

I don't use the sponges anymore. I do however keep the plastic screen on the bottom. I do have to clean them a lot, especially now that I've been fighting a nasty algae/cyano outbreak.
