Debris removing filter for QT

We're in the process of QT'ing a purple tang. Right now, the only "filter" we have in there is a one of those sponge/bubble type filters. Unfortunately, the thing doesn't remove debris from the tank. We're tyring to feed minimally, but the tang tears apart nori on a clip and we constantly fight to siphon it out through an airline hose. Anyone have suggestions for good filter to pull this floating mess out of a 20gal tank?

"Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I apologize if my last remarks sounded condescending . . . that means when you talk down to people."
120g RR, 65g HOB and 10g sump, 150g frag tank, 100g sump. Highlights of live stock: Golden Moray eel, 2 purple tangs, 2 yellow tangs, 1 large copperband, 4 GSM's, dragon wrasse, barnacle blenny, 2 pajama cards, 3 green chromis and a dynamic assortment of soft & LPS corals.
