works fine, just don't get the super fluffy stuff, the kind that comes apart easily - make sure you have to rip it apart. The other kind will get in your filter impeller.
I use the white poly fill stuff and sofa sponge (the yellow kind, ripped into smallish cubes.. great surface area)... but the best filter media I've found, by far, are POT SCRUBBIES! 10 for $1 at the dollar store, max bio capacity and they don't compact.
