Sponge filters are rated per gallon. You can get 2 ten gallon sponge filters or 1 twenty gallon sponge filter. Just make sure you have an air pump rated for 20 gallons to run the filter.

Two of these (or similar) running off a Tetra Whisper 20g airpump would handle your biofilter needs.

One sponge filter and a small HOB would probably work better. And one would back-up the other.
