m00se Funny you mention that....I was in Petsmart the other day. They have an end cap with Closeout stuff on it, and I spotted their display boxes of air stones @ .17 a piece on them. I bought 35 air stones for $6. I grinned.

i was using the blue mist fine air stone...but they crumble when touch after a couple month...litterly crumble in your hand into tiny sand..

I want to try the limestone because i don't want to spend .69 for a single pack and keep changing them..

GraphicGr8s I've tried the wood ones. Also the glass bead ones. Plus some others over the years. Keep going back to the cheap green or blue ones. They all clog. Just resign myself to the fact that eventually I will be replacing them. Also, you can get an el cheapo that has a fine mist or coarse.

Wood airstone

Have anyone use wooden air stone within a sponge filter to creat finer bubbles?

I kept using blue mist air stone to creat micro bubble but after a while ..it getts clogg and shatter into tiny pieces when touch...

I place an order for some wooden air diffuser so I can attach them to my ATI sponge filter to produce small bubble....i like them that way

Do they last a long time and do you need to clean them?
