While there are sponge filters available "rated" for up to 80 gallon tanks, 
the size of the filter is more dependent upon the bioload it has to maintain. 
 The same fish in a ten gallon tank as a 29, the same size filter to handle 
their nitrogen cycle needs.

I use UGFs for breeding tanks most of the time.
