It works at mechanical level to remove floating/ suspended matter and biological level by reducing toxic ammonia and nitrites to less harmful nitrate which can either be consumed by plants or removed during water change.

But filtration depends upon the filter material like it have some sponge material or should i replace it something else?

If you want stable and good results, go for canisters. These internal filters also works well but need to clean regularly. Sponge is enough.
