Found the exact sponge you used, turned the filter like high.
Works like a charm. But I feel as if it's not filtering enough (?)
The water just seems very still and slow.

I think it is filtering still; I put the floating betta log in the tank and it is constantly floating if i don't put it in between plants to hold it still.

I am doing regular weekly water test and all parametres are fine, but I am still doing about 20% water change weekly even all parametres are good.

If you want a stronger current maybe you can cut the sponge a little; I didn't do that though. There is 2 sponges in a package anyways~ fail-safe

Well cut a fluval filter sponge into a little square and cut a section for the outflow tube.. AND IT WORKS!
The water still looks good and tests perfect and better yet Deulaegon Jase made is first bubble nest this morning! I guess he approves...well either that or he has a weird interest in his new roomate Luke (gold mystery snail) hahaa
