Question Good filter for 10 gallon tank?

I recently got my first betta fish, King, and right now he's only living in a 1.5 tank (that's all my parents are letting me have for now ), but my mom is going to buy King a 10 gallon tank when she can. All i need for the tank is a filter because one is not included with it. Does anyone know a great working cheap filter for a 10 gallon? Thank you.

It's not too strong for me. It's a left over filter I had, works well in my 10gal community with a Betta

The easiest and cheapest way to go would just be to have some sponge filters. They cost very little and don't take too long to make. Plus they provide excellent filtration and IMO are extremely easy to clean!

The tank kits come with their own filters. Just buy a sponge media and swap out the carbon media for the sponge.

How do you make a sponge filter? Or do you buy them already made?

You can buy them or make them. The ones that you buy are obviously more aesthetic, but the ones you make are cheaper.

Here's a link to make your own: http://www.planetinverts.com/DIY_sponge_filters.html

And here's a link to buy: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...5MB4084RDFZNZ4
