DIY Nano Sponge Filter Question

Hi, so I've been looking around to find ideas for a DIY sponge filter for my shrimp tank seeing as the filter I got with the tank is too strong. I came across this one on youtube:


20Gal - 3 Native Cyprinidae
5Gal - 3 Apple Snails
4Gal - 15 Shrimp
3Gal - 1 Betta

I think that would work, the only point I have to add is these filters work by surface area so the more surface area on the sponge you have the better.
