Will this be the only filter I need or do I use a carbon filter with it?

Is this all you need for it to work?

Asked by: Sunshine S
Nope! You need an air pump and airline tubing. A check valve is also optional. There are many videos on YouTube to help.

Is this filter fry friendly? Can they be sucked into sponge?

Asked by: Tom Lennie
Sponge filters are the preferred filtration for fry tanks. The fry will actually feed on some of the debris caught on the sponge filter.

Does this fit on the bottom of my whisper filter? Or does it need a separate pump?

Asked by: Scf78
You will need an air pump to run this type of filter...if you are running any type of airline into your tank for oxygenation, you can use that line.

What does sponge filters do?

Asked by: Marto
