I have no idea about those filters, but I have used a HOB and a small canister for my shrimp aquariums. I just place a small foam filter over the intake. This is what I used and just cut a slit in it and put it over the filter intake.

id still prefer just the corner filters if its enough because my hob filter is sinking floating plants to, which in turn catch on stuff and die off
