Not sure of the brand of pump I use but it is about 800 gph and piped to 4 jets. I have a Filter-Max III pre-filter on it. I rinse the sponge during each water change. It has been in place for over 2 years and the sponge shows no sign of deterioration. The filter comes with all sorts of adpaters so it would probably mate to most any pump inlet. Don't change the sponge, they provide additional mechanical and bilogoical filtration as well as keeping small fish and fry from being ground-up.
