Various filter materials are easy to cut and conform to any design you may have in mind.
Reticulated Open Cell Foam is the coarse black material used to make large sponge filters. It's coarse enough to catch a lot of solid waste but not clog. Rapidly colonizes with beneficial nitrogen reducing bacteria. When it's time to clean ROCF you simply wring it like a sponge material. It cleans pretty easy.
Japanese Fiber Bonded Matting is basically the oh-so-common white Japanese matting. It's coarse and allows for a lot of solids capture before clogging and allowing bypass. The matting is rigid enough to hold its form and position in the filter.
