A filter sponge is an essential part of the BiOrb aquarium filtering process, the mechanical sponge filtration will trap any detritus flowing through the filter helping to keep the BiOrb clean. The filter sponge will also house beneficial bacteria helping to keep your BiOrb a safe and healthy environment for your fish. 

Orb-it filter sponges have been custom designed and manufactured, they are fully tested for use in BiOrb aquariums and offer excellent quality. Orb-it filter sponges are approved by the BiorbForum community.
 
While fishless cycling your BiOrb we recommend to keep and use the initial filter sponge for the first three months, this will ensure that beneficial bacteria has sufficient time to colonise on any aquarium decor, ceramic media or large pea gravel within the BiOrb. If the orb-it filter sponge gets dirty simply give it a swish in removed tank water when performing your 10% weekly water changes. After the three month period a fresh orb-it filter sponge can safely be added every one to two months.
 
During the initial three months if you chosse to run your filter with activated carbon pellets, they should be replaced on a monthly basis. We do not recommend to use any pellets during the fishless cycle and zeolite pellets should not be used long term as zeolite will remove the ammonia which is the food source for the beneficial bacteria required to keep the fish safe. Further information on zeolite and activated carbon can be found here: Zeolite and Activated Carbon.
