Just wondering if I have to worry about putting a sponge on my overflow drain to quiet it down.. The sponge is just a normal (new) sink sponge. I put it in for a minute, it works wonders...I just dont want to hurt anything. Thanks!
Ha...that does suck,,Im watching it pretty well right now. Sump is flowing normally. i will go to the fish store tomorrow and get a drain silencer...Its just a sponge that you shove in there but allows much more flow...i just didnt want to contaminate the tank. im not sure what they soak those things in before they sell them...Thanks for the reply! Also i just introduced a long spine black urchin in my tank...should i worry about getting poked )if it happens)
I, personally, would not. Sponges clog. There are definitely ways out there to silence overflows that are way more reliable. You'll be happier in the long run looking at modifying you plumbing a bit than with the sponge. Probably sleep better too.
