A basic aquarium pump has may uses when it comes to “Do it Yourself” and the aquarium hobby.
This is yet another use for one! A cheap and simple sponge filter. In my opinion, every fish tank should have one.
As mentioned in the video, you would have an already cycled filter for almost any situation. Make yours today for your fish tank, and it could possibly save you some real problems in the future!
To clean this filter, it is best to do so during a water change. Drain old tank water into a bucket, and rinse/squeeze the filter into it. When depends on how much you feed and how stocked the tank is. usually once a week is best.

Wait are you not meant to clean that sponge bit?? And why does mine have a hole but nothing through it? Iv had my tank for 9 months an I always clean the gunk out the sponge when I water change..please tell me what im doing wrong?
Or instead of buying an air pump, just buy a submersible pump with attached filter. They're like $10 on amazon.
Thanks for this. Appreciated. Critique if you're open to it: I feel like the video could be half the length tho and everytime you reference a component you say "actual" — like the "actual pvp pipe" or "the actual sponge" . It's funny.
How do we know that is sponge
Look at his lil' baby face back then 😀😊
You can get free sample ceramic tiles at Lowes or Home Depot by the way 🙂

He is looking as nervous as he is making the video on gunpoint of Al Qaeda
Wow! Awesome video! He looks so different now
How long is the pvc pipe supposed to be?
Thanks again, I was following a redundant design that had a pvc tube outside of the sponge! This is slick!
Hi I really like your videos. I have a sponge filter in my 15 gallon endler tank and rasbora tank. I have a lid made for the tank after two rasboras jumped off and died one evening. The only problem that am facing right is that the popping of bubbles is splashing water droplets all over inside the lid and over time they form big drops. If I dont wipe them off after maybe 6 hours, they start to drip from the top and cause water stain marks on the glass surface. Can you please suggest me any idea so that this water splashing can be stopped or reduced? I don't want to use any other type of filter cause sponge filters are perfect for me for the long run and I just love them.I do want the bubbles to pop cause it causes the much needed surface agitation and releases tiny air bubbles inside the water after popping which my endlers enjoy.
I learned a lot from this video. Thanks.

I wonder if this would work with an aquaponics setup? Filter out gunk underwater and feed the plant overhead.
Well thank you
I tried this in my 20 high for some added filtration and it works great. The water moves more and the tank is cleaner. I have had it now for two years. Thanks Joey.
Omg he looks so young
How did you attach the PVC to the ceramic tile?
I have an art studio near me and I enjoy doing ceramics. I was wondering if it is possible to make the ceramic tile out ceramic clay. Can you also make a pleco tunnel or the ceramic rings? Do you happen to know if you would need to glaze them or not? It seems odd when I get the media it doesn't need to be sealed.
I needed to build a filter, and wow things have changed a lot since this.
Hi Joey, how you doing? I have question. What kind of sponge I can use? I mean if differents densities of sponge could affect the bacteria to grow inside of the sponge?
Such a smol bean in this video XD
Bruh always look sad.
Does it matter if water doesn't come up faster and fuller like this one did? Mine is just dripping water out of the top elbow.
Very good video 👍🔔😁
How effective are sponge filters for aquatic turtles
just search what other thing than silicone to glue the cap with ceramic tile, hot glue gun! I already have it at home that a saving. Thank you sir!
Could I make this sideways? The air would still end up outside where you want it to.
Where do you get the sponge from
Thanks Adam Sandler!!!!!
