That's what I'd do. Use filter floss or maybe one of those bonded filter pads, something for some mechanical filtration. The idea is to get the water moving down there. The Emperor can handle the biological and any chemical filtration you want to do. For a while I had a Penguin 170 on my tank as well packed full of filter floss. It was purely for water movement and water polishing. Worked very well too.
