For me I just use sponge.... not the best out there but why would I spend a lot more money on the best when the worst still do a great job? :)
Of course I have different kind of sponge too. The finest sponge are at the bottom layer.

More does not necessary means better. Filter media can basically be seen as "Bacteria House". Putting it simple, -
- Assuming 1cm square surface can house 1000 bacteria unit. Then if you have 10cm square than you can house 10.000 bacteria unit.
- Sounds good right? But then just like human, bacteria needs food. So unless tank can produce enough food for 10.000 bacteria unit, you will not have 10.000

So nope.If you have a heavily stocked tank or very messy fish then sure, more filter media is very good. But then keep in mind bacteria can also harbor in other places too like in substrates - I believe I read somewhere actually a lot of nitrifying bacteria lives in the subtrates.

Then it comes to physical filtration.... again at some point the media that first comes into contact with water will filter out most of the solid debris already. If they manage to go through then it's not very likely that the second layer of the same material will be able to filter it.

Best set up for filtering media would be from the coarsest to the finest media in layers.

Well done for rescuing the fish and well done for getting him transferred into the home he deserves. Thanks also for the update - I like good news stories like this. :)

UPDATE:

Thank you to everyone who responded. Hope is going to a local pond, owned by a man who rescues fish. Very, very happy!

He looks really lovely, so I do hope there is a happy outcome for him.

To maximise the chances of him going to a good home, I'd advise also advertising on aquarist-classifieds.co.uk Best of luck!

In the meantime, could you buy a large storage box such as a Really Useful Box to house him in temporarily? There are 100+ litre sizes. I'd just be really concerned that, in such a tiny bowl, he'll not survive to make it into his new home, especially if there is a delay before his new home is found. The Really Useful Box could then be put to other uses afterwards.
