There isn't a filter made that doesn't require maintenance and media changes/cleaning on occasion that I know of.

Sure, you can place a nice large block of filter floss in there and then you'll only have to rinse it out in a bucket of tank water when you clean it.

Such as this: Aquarium Mechanical Filtration Media: Blue Bonded Filter Pads
