Sponge Filters in the Planted Tank

Would I like to here about experiences with these for filtration in the planted tank..Currently in the process of cycling a 10g,using 2 aquatop sponge filters along with a solarflare led fixture(3w LEDs-2 6500k-2 10000k-1 blue)...also no heater in this setup. This will be a planted shrimp only tank as well..

There's no problem with the sponge filters themselves, but they might be pretty mean offgassers if you wanted to pursue CO2.
