With very small fry, such as Aphyobranchius fry, I would suggest caution
with such a method. Sponges are, of course, porous and if you get a good
suction going (as you certainly would with a "normal" hose) the fry will be
sucked right into the sponge, never to be seen again. Believe me,
Aphyobranchius fry are SMALL and would have no trouble disappearing into the
pores of a sponge.
