Looking for opinions ..... I have never used sponge filters before. I know allot of folks swear by them, but it just doesnt seem like enough water movement to me. I added a cascade 170 power filter to each section of my shrimp tanks. They are 35 gph at full blast. They just have a small sponge filter on the bottom. I like the way the water moves a little now , but am kinda concerned about the baby shrimp. I have had a similar filter in my Cherry tank for a year, with no problems, but that is a bigger / longer tank.
The sponge filters I am using are Hydro- sponge II rated for up to 20 gallons. Each section I am filtering is about 7 gallons.
Sooooo the question is.... should I just skip the in tank power filters, or keep them going?

I don't know about the filter's, but I usually like lots of water movement. But I'm not sure if baby shrimp do...

I really like those tiger shrimp and the CRS! And those acrylic tanks are awesome!

About time for an update..... LOL
I have 3 tanks now with a total of 8 sections.

Unfortunately, I had a major mishap while I was on Vacation, and had to kinda start over.



I am actually messing with mystery snails in a couple of sections.







Getting some cool color shells. Now I want some with a blue foot, to see what happens.

Beautiful shells on those mystery snails! What are your water parameters? I'd love it if my snails looked that glossy and smooth.
