By raised, do you mean lifted away from the tank edge/bottom?

They need to be raised? If they screws are going to to contact the water they need to be high grade stainless. But if you just use a piece of plastic cut to fit snug they will raise the filter and screws will not be needed.

Plastic screws would be best.
