Some people have had good luck with UGFs.. I have had two in my life.. and yes, there was a ton of yuck underneath. I wouldn't want that near my fish, or me, and it was especially gross as the first had been in my kitchen.
Fortunately, I don't use my kitchen.
There is a reason that a ten gallon filter is called that.. it's made for a ten gallon aquarium.
Are you planning on overstocking, worried about overfeeding, or just concerned for your fish?
If the first, don't.
If it's the second, feed as much as they'll eat in five minutes, and siphon up the rest.
If it's the third, follow the two above bits of advice, and you should be just fine.
