Hi everyone! I am still torn about what I want to do with my 10 gallon; however, one idea I am strongly considering is a colony of a micro native (perhaps H. formosa, Elassoma, or L. ommata) or a community with H. formosa and one of those other species (or perhaps a trio of Lucania goodei or a small Fundulus species like cingulatus or rubrifrons). However, this is intended to be a high tech planted tank with CO2 added, and the only way I am going to be able to diffuse the CO2 is with a powerhead - obviously not safe for little 1 inch fishes (and certainly not their fry).
My idea is to take a powerhead (either 60 GPH or 130 GPH) and attach two sponge filters to its intake using some silicone tubing and a tee valve. My thought is that this will spread out the intake flow enough to avoid either sucking the fish up or leaving them stuck against the sponge filter, while not being nearly as complex as installing a hamburg matten filter (my first idea to this effect). My question is, would this actually work? Thanks
