Tetra makes one that filters up to 3gal. I'm currently using one in my new tank and I haven't found any issue with it yet. :)

Tom's has a mini filter with a spray bar attachment to reduce water flow intensity.

I have the Hagen mini Elite and it's very strong, but cheaper $8.59 on Amazon. I'm going to put exta filter media in it and on the outflow nozzle to slow it down

Can't go past a small sponge filter. No risk of damage to the fish, getting sucked into intakes etc and gives the water a little surface movement without blowing the fish around (you'll need a little screw valve for the airline to regulate air flow from the pump, costs about $2). I squeeze my filters gently into old tank water once every few weeks to clean out the crud, and overall I'm pretty happy with the resulting water quality.
