Default Safe to Use Styrofoam Plate in Tank?

My filter was producing a very strong current so I tried out a little DIY modification and the best result came from using a piece of a paper plate. Is it safe to use this in my tank or should I find some other material?

Styrofoam is okay. Clean it with some water before putting it in your tank.
