Settin up a 5.5 shrimp/tetra planted tank

Would an aquaclear 20 powerhead with a sponge filter be a good filtration for this type of tank? If not, what would be better? Im open to any advise people want to give me.

I guess that would be fine, especially considering you can adjust the flow if you think it's too much! Just remember to cover the intake with something. I think aquaclears are best. I'm using a whisper 10i in a 5.5 and it take up too much space within the tank!
