Hamburg Matten filters are some of the most efficient filters on the market for fish and shrimp tanks.
Great for fry (baby fish and shrimp) tanks as it uses large foam pads to create a massive biological surface without a lot of intake flow. This filter design allows for low power usage (only a airpump is needed) and low maintenance.
Files included are:
HamburgMattenSubstrate_bottom.stl - Matten part for insertion into substrate without dirtying the foam. This can be extended for deeper beds (currently 2cm)
HamburgMattenSpongeHolder.stl - Sponge holder which slots onto the bottom, print with supports for slots which connect to the bottom. Print multiple units to increase total height. Includes clamp/holder for Jetlift tubes of 20mm diameter.
PLA or ABS.

Havn't printed this personally but thinking 60+% infill should be used so it sinks.. 2 shells.
