    Default How to maximize water flow through sponge filters without hi flow in tank and surface

    You could attach them to powerheads instead of an air pump, and position the outflow of the powerhead to a corner or something so the flow of the tank doesn't disturb the fish very much. I've never done this myself, but I've seen it done many times.
