    Default sponge filter with canister question.

    I have a canister filter fitted with a sponge in the inlet.
    currently running co2 24/7 because
    I don't have co2 timer.

    I know I should use air stone at night to air off the co2
    My question is, if I use a sponge filter with air pump on timer, will it be ok? If it is off, will the debris be released?
    Should I just use an air stone ?

    I want a sponge filter because it can help feed the baby shrimps.

    Except maybe for a few minutes when feeding powder' foods... I would never turn off the canister filter !!
    (bacteria need fresh O2 at all times)
