    Hi guy's this is a warning about Fluval sponges killing some of my fish 3x discus 2 punchard gutted 3 large clowns and a small spotted black pleco with white shots i never did know the name. I purchased someone Fluval 406 white sponge's the long ones after doing my main weekly water change i open the sponge box and the sponge's we're a dark orange colour so i phoned gordon riggs the place of purchase for advice and was told to put them in the tank but i wasn't happy so i call the other branch for advice and got told there completely safe so i phoned Fluval i was told they should be ok but has it was a Friday someone would call me back Monday so i placed them in the tank thinking i would change buy new on Monday for my next small water change anyway 8 or 9 fish in total died I'm gutted
