Air Driven Sponge Filter??

I have a couple of airpumps I got in a lot purchase. I also have plenty of airline.

I need to set up an air driven sponge filter for a shrimp breeding tank. I have ZERO experience or knowledge on this.

What else do I need? I saw a kit that comes with the air pump, so I assume there's a way to buy just the sponge part?

I feel like a total newb all over again. LOL

If you already have an air pump, you just attach the airline tubing to the sponge filter and it'll do it's thing.

They usually come complete with everything you need, except the air pump & tubing.

That's okay. I already ordered one from Drs. I needed some other supplies anyway.
