Prefilter Sponges

As the 'Quick" filter thread was slipping down the forum, I thought I would move it up a bit. Here is a pic of the pond-pump pre-filter sponges I use on our River-Tank intakes. I got these in England, but I bet that similar stuff is available at a decent supplier of pond equipment.

Central bore is 3/4" and that fits many powerhead intake strainer cones. These being black also makes them more unobtrusive than some blue coloured options out there.
