Best filter for minimal water movement

Baffling is just a pain on the current filter I have. Are there any adjustable filters out there? What's the best?

Sponge filters are generally considered the best for bettas as they are both effective and release very little current. They do need a air pump and tubing to work, though.

I have a Marina S10 filter. The flow is adjustable and it seems to work well. I am not an expert though; this is the first filter I've used. I've had my betta for about a month.

If you don't want to baffle, then a sponge filter may be the best way to go/ However, then you need an airpump and they can be nosiy

I have a sponge filter with a Walmart tetra whisper air pump...very quick. I have a plastic value that lets me adjust the airflow. I'm very happy with it after having the whole baffling business. This is much easier and cheaper. It looked really complicated for some reason when I read about it but actually it's very easy. On you tube there's a demo for ati sponge filters. It shows assembly of it, but when I got mine it came assembled already. I ordered through kens fish online: http://www.kensfish.com/aquarium-sup...e-filters.html

There's a good sponge filter thread on here if you want to read up on them.
