I plan on my next Betta being an elephant ear. Would a five gallon work. I doubt they will catch on they cost 30 dollars here and people stop buying at ten my petco sells even less Kings than before.

we're only one state away and Hanny only cost us twenty bucks. i say "only", but EE's are the most expensive freshwater fish they were selling, haha. make sure you have a strong block on your filter, just in case he gets his "ears" stuck in the suction. we used a 1"x1"x1" section of aquarium sponge stuck up in the intake tube, and it slowed the filter from a heavy rush to a slow but steady trickle. if yours is one that's powered by an airline pump, get a gang valve for the tubing, and adjust the flow till it's just dribbling out.

Are there any regular filters I can use because I do not think sponge filters are good for planted tanks.

P.S. the just started selling them here King bettas cost 15 elaphants cost either 20 or thirty but I feel if you find the right beta it is worth is because they can live quite a long time.
