Yes! A sponge is a filter feeder that feeds on small particles in the water.
No, it has pores which allow the sponge to filter feed.
filter the water
technically no because it filter feeds.
Sponges are filter feeders. This means that they pull water through their bodies and eat whatever they can filter out of it. The more folds and spaces that a sponge has, the more spaces there are for it to filter. This is the reason that sponge bodies are full of holes and spaces.
That is the filter for the PCV system.
The feeding mechanism of sponge is called filter-feeding which is performed by coanocyte cells.
The pores in a sponge are used to filter the water, and while doing that they collect food to eat
The sponge filter feeds
Yes. Like all animals, sponge is a consumer. Sponge is a stationary animal that cling to rocks and filter feed by sucking the water in and taking the nutrients from that water out.
The surface of the orange puffball sponge is covered with small pores that filter small particles of food from the water that passes through them. Each sponge has flagella that help move the water through the sponge.
He has gone out of the water before and been fine.

Shop-vac with a sponge filter.
it matters what you mean by survive... it feeds by filter feeding.
Any baby fish can get sucked into a filter and killed quite easily. While your tetras are very small, it's best to use a sponge filter. This is basically a piece of fine aquarium sponge that is attached to an air pump and the rising air bubbles draw water through the sponge. It will not hurt your fry, you may even see them 'grazing' on tiny bits of food that get stuck to the sponge. The drawback of sponge filters is that they are not particularly powerful, and will not cope with a heavy bioload - don't overstock a tank that's running on a sponge filter. When your fry get a bit bigger, switch them over to whatever kind of filtration you normally use, but cover the inlet with some pantyhose. This is a cheap and easy way to stop fry being sucked into a filter.

The sponge is a niche filler. It is a simple filter feeder which is hard to replace with any other animal because of it's simple life cycle.
If the air filter is the sponge-type, it can be washed with soap and warm water, then rinsed. Wring as much water out of it as you can and then let it dry completely. After it dries, soak a little oil on it before re-installing it. If it's a paper filter, you can tap the filter against something to shake out the loose dust/dirt. If you can't "see daylight" showing through the filter after cleaning, replace the filter.
They eat bacteria, plankton and detritus. When they take in water... they filter these things out, and can filter even the smallest bacteria.
They are filter feeders. They filter water through they're pores and extract the particles from the water.
The body structure of a sponge is mostly a spongy skin that is jelly like. The outer layer of this skin is bombarded with pores, which it uses to filter feed. In the filter feeding process, it eats the tiny plankton and other organisms that live under the ocean. It has a large cavity inside of the sponges skin where in reproduction, the sponge stores the sperm and egg cells to make the sponge larvae. The larvae then swims out of the sponge using its newly developed flagella and lands safely somewhere on the bottom of the ocean, where eventually, this sponge will grow to be an adult.
