The are very porous and provide a lot of surface for BB. Their are best placed as close as possible to the outflow.

Wow, on another thread someone said ideally I should have enough filtration for double the size tank; i.e., I should have enough for a 110 gal tank, so I at some point should consider upgrading or adding another filter. What determines how much filtration is enough? The whole conversation started when I posted that after a WC I noticed some detritus worms after I had stirred up my sand. I don't even have fish yet; therefore no "excess" food at the bottom. BTW, it's supposed to filter 400 gallons/hour, according to Aqueon.

I was just reading about sponge pre-filters for HOBs like this. Anybody have any experience with that, in particular, the FilterMax?
