So I have the wonderful duckweed in my O tank and due to air stones and 2 filters you could imagine I do t have the most subtle home at the top. So I noticed that the duckweed was pulling into the filters and could only imagine this being a pain in the ass. I had a pice of the black sponge from my fx6 laying around and had a idea. I cut the sponge so that it fits I side the intakes on both fx6 and 306. Now in my head this is great and way easier to clean then the filters themselves. Maybe I even can get some good bacteria on them IDK... But I'm sure one or more of you do know. Was this a good quick decision or should I go another path.

Black sponge? This isn't carbon is it?

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

should be okay as a prefilter. I would remove it it every week and rinse it out with old tank water to keep it clean.
