Description: SPONGE FILTERS ARE AWESOME!!!! I have been using them for years. Simple, cheap and easy to maintain all the while they provide some of the best bacteria filtration.
Advice: Don't be intimidated by people that say keeping an aquarium is difficult. It really isn't but you have to maintain it that's it. Take 30 min's once a week and one can have a stable nice looking tank.
About Yourself: I live in Portland OR. I have had this 26 gal for over two years now but I have had many different tanks in the past. Most have been much larger. Yea I will be getting another tank soon. Ummmm I'm thinking a 60gal.
