Manual filter via water changes? A filter is a filter, it does the same job. I hardly ever used one for anything under 10 gallons. However, if you want a good one, try searching around for reviews or continue to wait for people on the forums to suggest one for you. I've used the whisper filters from walmart, and they work okay. I've used my own diy sponge filter, it works too. In all honesty, I just find that it stresses the betta due to limited amount of space. So, if you are to get one, you might want to look into something with very slow and weak water flow, possibly one that is adjustable.

Right now on my 5gls I have Marina Slim Filter s10 which you can adjust the flow and works great .. but I think it would be to big for a 3gl.. I'm not opposed to not having one.. but if there is a smaller filter out there that would work and would be appropriate.. I would like to know..

Never used either of them, but I've heard that the Azoo Palm and Mignon filters work well.
