Filling an Eheim 2215 full of ATI hydro sponge

Thought of only - haven't done it yet.

Using a small hydro sponge on the intake, then cutting up more sponges to throw into the canister. Won't "stuff" them in, but it should, for the most part, cover all the space allowed inside the canister.

What do you guys think? Overkill? Or just not worth it and the material that came with the filter should be good enough?

The longer I'm involved in this hobby the more & more I'm convinced that Bio-Type species tanks are the way to go. Plants and fish/inverts live together in nature for a reason. I find the less I try to fight nature the better my tanks look.
