See if you can find a little plastic cap or plug that will the bottom depending on how big it is. Or, you can cut a msall plug out of another sponge and fill it in.

The Filstar prefilters I was using for a while have a hole that goes all the way through but also has a small clear plastic cap that fits into the bottom.

Pantyhose $0 wifes used one. Make sure you rinse it well just in case its been washed. Take a rubber band and tie at the top of the pantyhose. I like using the pantyhose because it allows more flow into your intake pipe. Sponge filters are good but decrease the water in take and slows down the out flow.
