I’ve got the sponge pre filter. I like it because it’s a good source of bacteria. The mesh version wouldn’t do that. I keep a spare sponge to clean my tank. I slip the spare on to vacuum and stir up gunk. I put the regular sponge in a bag while I clean. After the water settles down, I put the regular sponge that has the good filtering bacteria back in the tank. I usually take that opportunity to clean the old sponge. I’ve found that it’s easier to clean in the ziplock baggie.
