Good filter for my Betta?

I apologize before hand for making this long,I just wanna be careful

Hello sorry if I'm posting this in wrong part of forums, but I want some opinions On these 2 filters. I currently am very interested in the Hydro I Sponge Filter does anyone have any experience with it I really wanna get it. I currently broke my old Aqueon Quiet Flow 10 Aquarium Power Filter I had it replaced, but I really want the sponger filter the quiet flow kinda bothers my Betta and i don't wanna baffle it I rather get the sponge one If its any good.

So my question is the Hydro I Sponge Filter a good alternative? I also have a very little cheap filter that came with a tiny Betta kit If i get the sponge filter I'll be using the little cheap filter Purely for Beneficial bacteria since I don't think the sponger filter will provide any. I'll also be running 1 tetra air pump for water surface disruption. Do you guys think this will be Ok?

Sponge filters are the best for beneficial bacteria..Have plenty of space for bacteria growth. It's the sponge's bread and butter..What sponges lack is chemical filtration because it has no carbon which to me is a waste anyways but yes I'm going to also switch to sponge after plenty of research seems like a great form of filtration. I assume you have a 10 gallon tank? The one I've had many people recommend is this one..It's a great price and has lots of bacteria growing area.

Also I hear azoo sponges are good too.

That's pretty much the one I'm getting cept mine isn't coming from Hong Kong. I have heard from people who have them that they work well for 10 gallon tanks.

Yeah i think I'm going to buy this I mean i can wait for it to come even if it's coming from Hong Kong Looks like 1 air tube will go into this and 1 will go into my other air pump works out perfect. Unless you need 2 air tubes for the sponge filter again i'm new to this.
