Question Baffle question

Setting up my 10 gallon tank. I'm a bit confused on the baffling process. I have seen the instructions for the plastic water bottle baffle and have also seen some posts about using a sponge. Are these both for the same purpose or the water bottle just to slow the current and the sponge to protect the fish from the filter? (My filter is in the attached picture...)
Thanks!

both the sponge/bottle baffle reduce the flow
some users PREFER the sponge because there is less chance the betta can get trapped inside the baffle.
I made a bottle baffle because it was the best material i had on hand. I haven't had a problem with Spike getting inside it. Water level is JUST below the baffle.
