You'll need to turn it down very low but yes, the smallest sponge filter will work :) Make sure you pick up airline tubing and a check valve too.

I also own this filter and had it on my 1.5gl tank.. fit just right and worked great but the betta I have in there didnt seem to like it much so I moved it to a 2.5gl I have.

Oh ok thanks! Do you know why he didn't seem to like the filter very much? Bc mine seems to be finicky about some things. I think he's spoiled...
Also is that filter a sponge filter? (I don't know how to tell hehe)

not really sure.. might have just been to much for him..

it is a sponge filter and if you watch the set up video the guy on there will recommend the aquaclear sponge and filter media which u can get on the same site as the filter if your intrested in it..


don't mind the streaks.. lol

Are either of these good tanks?
http://www.petco.com/product/113933/...-Aquarium.aspx

or
http://www.petco.com/product/119280/...arium-Kit.aspx

They are both about the same price as the one I have now, but the one I have now is only 1.5 gl.
Does that heater heat up the tank to much or does it actually shut off? I have the aqueon one and it always goes above 85 if I don't turn it off
