I use an Elite replacement sponge that is easy to slide over the intake of the an Aquaclear filter. I leave the sponge inside the filter, but I fill the remainder of the filter with Seachem's Matrix. The Elite sponge will filter your water well and act as a sponge filter; so good biological action with the sponge on the intake, the sponge in the filter and with the Matrix media. The Elite sponge does not restrict flow.
Here is a link to the sponge filter. I did not purchase this filter, just the replacement sponges for it. I paid $8 for two of the sponges, I used the second sponge on my Eheim intake tube. http://www.petdiscounters.com/c244/E...ter-p7371.html
