Aquaclear 50 HOB
in a planted 29 Gallon FW
My intake seems to be gathering plant particles and recently I noticed at my LFS
a sponge type pre-filter (don't recall who made it) that you slip over the tube intake to eliminate small fry and debris from being sucked into your filter.
Sounds like a pretty good idea and for $2.47 not a costly decision... But as I pondered the item I am concerned that the sponge could get clogged over and the filter might not receive sufficient water flow to the point it would not filter the water and maybe even burn up the filter motor for lack of water flow.
Is this sponge a good intake option?
