| | Re: Poret Foam in Sump
Have it in my sump on my 180 and love it. Tank isn't stocked yet, just plants, so I can't answer on that, but I don't see why it would be any different than the two end tank matten filters I have set up in my 40 g. I take them out, beat them against the wall, and rinse them off about once every 6 months (lightly stocked tanks).
Are those inside the glass measurements? If so you might have to size up, The other option might be to put in glass strips on either side to hole the foam in place in the sump (like you would for a corner matten filter).
I have to say though, I'd get the larger foam and cut it to size, as there is a nearly endless use for the left over pieces of foam. Worst case, you can cut it into squares and throw it in the sump as extra bio material. Cutting is very easy with a bread knife (serrated).
