Bump so I have a new AC20 on my 10G and today I just saw my 1st baby RCS, and it went right into the filter,lol. So I turned it off and looked, I saw 4-5 adults and 1 adult Endler's Livebearer in there to my surprise:confused:

So after reading this about the real estate, I'm wondering how the people with the "I" version are holding up? How often to clean. Or maybe I should just get the "III".

Thanks MatPat! What one are you running on the Fluval 304? just one sponge each? I'm guessing you have 2 304's on the tank?

Well I'm planning on making an order from Ken's. I cant really see how a shrimplet could make it into a "III" sponge but who knows as I have not seen this in person.

I also was going to buy some for my Fluval 304, so I saw the pic about stacking them together and was wondering if they come like that? Does the bottom have a plug or something that you just take out and connect to another sponge? Or was that setup homemade by NoSvOrAx?

So I was thinking about buying 3 number III's(2 for the Fluval 304 and 1 for the AC20) but maybe I should get 2 III's and 1 "II" just incase?

Thanks again!

I was thinking about 2 number"III"'s for the Fluval 304 but I dont like the way they are connected in series. I think making an upside down "T" with them would be better since the series layout seems that the past of least resistance in the 1st one, then when it clogs it would be the next one, ect.. With 2 in a "T" shape they both would be equal in restriction so should clog evenly. I just have to locate the magic "T" piece to make it work.

I'll prob buy 2 for it(304), and just use 1 for now, and then if I find the "T" adapter and notice issues with just the one "III" then I'lll mod it as described above. Although Space in the 55g is at a premium also so hopefully 1 will work or I'll just run the "long" one made from 2 sponges. I guess we shall see.
