Question filter for a 5g?

What kind of filter is good for a 5.5g tank?

I'm most likely to have Mosquito fish in that tank or MAYBE a King betta if the Mos fish doesn't work out. Either way I want a filter in it.

You could do a sponge filter or find a small power filter. It depends on your preferences. I think a small whisper filter would work nicely. An HOB might work if you got one with adjustable flow.

I have this filter in my Betas tank, the current is not too strong. I would reccomend it to anyone. You just have to rotate the nozel to the lowest setting to adjust the current.

You can adjust the flow with no problem.

I've got the TOM internal mini in both my 2.5 gals, and it works great. The flow with the basic diffuser is a bit strong, but its not bad. Use the spray bar...plus replacement cartridges are like 5 bucks for 3.
