I wouldnt risk it, because sponge filters make no current and have no risk of sucking up fry.

Sponge filters are easier because there is no chance of even the smallest fry being sucked up, and you can regulate the flow to only a few bubbles per second, where I have yet to see any internal filter I would consider low-flow enough for a fry tank.

To clear things up, yes you can breed in the 5 gal. IME fish spawn faster when they're in a smaller space. Just make sure there's enough cover for the female. I used to breed in a 2g tub. Just make sure you move the fry to a growout. If I were you I would set up the 10g as the growout and spawn in the 5g.
