Default Where to find prefilter/filter sponges 18"-22" tall

Slowly working on my native riffle tank and having a hard time finding filter sponges for the intake side of my river manifold. Plan is to run 2 JBJ 530gph powerheads and my Aqueon 55-75 (it was free with the tank) through the 3/4" PVC. My intake side is 18" tall and I want to round sponges, preferably 2" in diameter to go over them (1"id, 2"od) This is the closest I have found so far without having to custom cut reefugium pads which would be difficult at that length.

Have found these but would prefer one piece and closed at one end

Prefilter Foam Round, Large - AquaCave.com



And yes, I plan on building a canopy to properly mount my lights. The one on it now came with it and is a Deepblue T5 NO 56w with a 10k and Actinic Blue bulb which both will be changed out.

You should look into using Poret foam for an HMF filter. It would act as a mechanical prefilter and also be a wall foam instead of a cylinder.

I use these on my 3/4" intakes. And if needed you can stack them.
