Ya, I have one in just about all my tanks now. The regular sponges are great for breeding/growout tanks, the Pro sponges are better for larger fish.

Most folks with large numbers of tanks/fishrooms only use sponge filters. Much more economical and practical to run one heavy-duty air supply than dozens of hob filters. They're as good as anything else for biological filtration, only drawback is they don't move water (and debris) around the tank to get picked up like hob's or powerheads.
