Question Filter Advice

I kno this is an old saw but im going to the pet store tomorrow and im asking for some advice on wat filter to buy if they have it.

I have a 5gal tank and I'm thinking a filter that's only up to 5 gallons - none of this 5-15 business or bigger - the one i've got almost ate him. But, I'm hoping I can find one I don't have to modify. I don't see the point of having a filter that i have to slide a piece of stocking over and have guck collect all over that.

So, any suggestions on brands, etc.?

Most petstores don't have it, but Amazon does, the Tom Mini Internal filter. It comes with a spray bar also so no rapid current for your betta. With just a betta in a 5 gallon tank you can easily get away with a 1-3 gallon filter as well. The more you stock the higher filter capacity you need.

Hmmm, a lil pricey but excellent reviews I may just have to make the upgrade. Good call, thx mate!

No problem.

And compared to most filters you will be paying at least $20 for a good one, if not more. I always check Amazon and eBay before buying something in the store because 95% of the time I find it cheaper on those websites.
