That works, but you cover it with water, (I would use lettuce), wait until the water turns cloudy and then clears up again, and then feed it with a dropper.
Personally, I'd set up a soil tank (soil is full of dormant basteria), drop some dry leaves in (from an area untained by pollution and such), throw a bunch of plants in, and put a lot of plant-safe snails (pond, Ramshorn, MTS). Let it sit with no fish feeding lightly daily and only the (soon to be massive) snail population. Soon you'll see all kinds of little planaria moving around the tank. Scoop out a bunch of snails, and you're ready.
(The planaria act as food for the larger fry. Planaria feed on infusoria, so they tell you when there is some.)
Sponge filter is good, but I'd use a powerhead-driven one.
