How do you keep them from eating the sponge filter... or just the sponge you put over the power filter intake?

That's strange behavior. My pair has never eaten the sponge. They always eat their fry though. I have to syphon the fry the day they become free swimming or else they are eaten.

Are there snails in it? Mine ate every snail of any size in a 55. Maybe they'll stop when the snails are gone.

I think you could try a cage or plastic mesh like they use to protect discus eggs from their parents. Otherwise, I guess its back to box filters.
