Double barrel sponge filter

Recommended Posts

In my tank with CO2 they would eventually collapse. They feel squishy and slow to return to normal when cleaning. That is if your talking about these:




EDIT: They don't do this in the non-CO2 tanks.

Check the airlines. Sometimes I would accidentally pinch a line, or a connection would develop a slight leak. Also, try turning the air pump off and on again (silly, but on occasion doing so would mysteriously double output). And of course, check your new pump versus your old one (if I am reading that right and you have changed pumps).

I've run sponge-type filters for years, and I've never known one to sputter out in such a short period of time. Maybe in a very dirty tank, you could get a clog that fast, but cleaning the sponge ought to fix that problem.
