filter for divided tanks?

we just got a little tetra filter for one of our 5 gal, but when i tried it on the 10 gallon for size (to see how it works with the divider) i noticed that i couldnt position the filter so the water flow would pour into both sides of the tank. it hangs into the tank too low. i dont need this one for my divided tanks, but im going to be buying filters for them soon, and im wondering what filters do you guys use in your divided tanks so that both sides get good water flow. Im asking this because when i ran it in just one side the water surface on the other was far calmer then the other, and im concerned about equal flow. Also is there a write up on sponge baffles on here anywhere?

i had read your thread on the divided tanks before and found it very helpful. its just i know ive seen photos of people with divided 10's and just regular hob filters that were pouring directly onto the divider and im currious as to which filter they used.

ive seen that baffle thread, but i was wondering about a sponge baffle. ive heard they work better?
