Aquaclear20

I'm thinking of ordering one of these and putting it in my 10 gallon fry grow out tank I will have a sponge filter in there but I was gonna use the aquaclear for mechanical filtration. Anyone think this is a good idea, and where can I find a sponge pre-filter for it? Also, if anyone has any recommendations for different filters besides the aquaclear, it would be greatly appreciated.

Aquaclear is great, but always with a prefilter when used for fry....you can simply use an AquaClear spong over the intake, or use my fave, the ATI Filter-max pre-filter (size 1 fits AC 20 intakes perfectly):
