I would not run a sponge filter for them, but do what was suggested. You can put a sponge filter over your intake, until they get big enough to resist the pull of the water. Fluval makes them, they are cheap, under $5.00, real cheap on Amazon. It fits over the intake. Just make sure you squeeze out the filter with each water change,because it can get clogged and dirty and impact your water flow going into the filter.
You need good filtration with DP's as they are messy eaters.
