Smile Filter recommendations for 10 gallon tank?

Hey everyone!

The Petco near my house is having their every so often "$1 per gallon" sale, and I'm purchasing a 10 gallon to become a betta / neon tetra community tank. I wanted to see if anyone could help me by recommending some good filters they've used in their 10 gallons.

I'm not in a hurry to purchase any fish yet because I do want to try and have the tank set up and cycled beforehand.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

What she said ^^^^^ :)

My ten gallon is still fairly new, but it has the Aquaclear 20 on it and it's dead quiet. I love it so much that I bought another one to replace the filter that came in my 5.5 gallon kit.

I'll definitely look it up!

Also, I have another question. In terms of the filter size, is it more recommended to go a bigger size? Would it be better to get a 20g filter for a 10g tank?

It's nearly impossible to over filter a tank...but very easy to under filter it. I recommend the aqua-clear 20, too. Most all of my tanks have aqua-clears and I love that you can adjust the flow and it's pretty versatile as far as filter media goes.

Have you considered the zoo medic 501 canister? It would be ideal for your tank size.
