I do love the simplicity of the good ole' -low tech sponge filters! I think I'm just going to keep mine in and running, now that I've thought more about it. Are you running the sponge exclusively?

You could run the sponges by themselves for sure, just leave the hob on while the new sponges seed, two weeks should be fine.
Do you have battery pumps for the outages?
I have one and it worked great during sandy
You could hook them up together so when the power goes out you don't have to do a thing.
You probably know this already just pointing out the obvious lol
Good to hear. The sponge is already been going for months. No on the battery operated pumps, I actually have a (2) APC Battery back ups for the computer. I just use a 1watt pump haven't had a problem.

I am running the pond filter exclusively on the 125 and no issues to date. It's relatively lightly stocked at the moment, but that should change shortly as it's housing a couple dozen marmokrebs at the moment. I already have another one for the other side of the tank when the population increases.
