Smile Filter for a 2.5 gal?

Hi, all-

Cameron is finally in his new digs(I'd take pics but it looks like... yeah... since I'll be tearing it down in about 4 days for the big move), so hopefully this tail biting will stop. Never would have thought it'd be this irritating. lol...

Anyway he's in a Topfin 2.5 gal rectangular tank. Simple and clean, but heavier than heck when it comes to moving it. I don't do a whole lot of heavy lifting, so to cut down on water changes (and so I don't develop killer biceps from lifting the tank often), What sort of filter would you guys recommend for this size of tank?

Thanks so much in advance!

Red Sea Deco Art Nano Filter. $15 from Petco. Awesome hang on back filter.

or

Hagen Elite Mini Internal Filter $10 also from Petco. You would have to stuff it with stuff to cut down the flow because it's basically a powerhead with a filter attached, but in my eyes, it just means more surface areas for good bacteria to live on. :) I reduced mine and it's very easy for Ty to swim in now.

The Penplaxx Small World Filter http://www.petco.com/product/3199/Pe...FishFC_Filters (go down to the 4th review by CrowntailComet for a betta owner's review.)

Have come recommended before =]

Any sponge filter.

I made my own using an aquaclear 30 gallon sponge refill and an air stone! =] It was pretty rough before I found out how to use my gang valve but now that I know how to use the gang valve it's doing great in my hospital tank since I limited the air output! =]

The little filter at fish.com is on sale right now - the one for your size tank is only $2.99 & their shipping is reasonable. It is the second link Wally posted. I have used that site before without any problems. :)
