U tried using sponge filters and they got sucked in!! What!! That is almost impossible unless they went into the hole where the bubbles come out. The Hagen is not a sponge filter. Sponge is like this:

Or:

Oh. Lol. No not a sponge inside. An actual sponge filter. u dont want too much current either as fry don't like strong currents.
U need an air pump to make the sponge filter work btw.

It's like a sponge filter becuz it uses an air pump to pump water but its also similar to a canister filter becuz it has three layers of media. So it's a sponge/canister filter mix. I think it is fry safe but not sure. I have never had one before but have seen vids before and it looked pretty good. The media helps the water get cleaner and usually is bio,chemical, and mechanical type of filtering combined in one.

R u keeping the fry in the vase? Keeping them in the vase should be fine as long as u have air being pump into it. ( sponge/mini canister filter or air stone ). The water can't get too cold either. U can prob attach a small heater on the side of the vase.
