    I have a internal filter that I bought for my fresh water tank but was too powerful and was blowing fish all over the tank.

    My question : if I remove the sponge and put bio pellets in the filter would this work ?
    It is rated at 1200lph

    Q1. Can you controll the flow?
    Q2. What is going to stop the pellets from exiting the filter if you remove the sponge?
    Q3. What will the adding of bio pellets stop the filter blowing the fish around?

    Great. Adjusting the flow achieves many things. Then the filter will not blow the bio pellets all over the place. And the flow will not be to strong for the fish.

    Just check out the many threads on bio pellet flow. Loads of advice their.
