Whisper filter for 1-3 gallon

Simply stopped working! What do I do? It's set up to be attatched to the tank.. should I just get another one?

If you only have 1 betta, then it's not worth getting a filter, filters are useful when it's been cycled and there is enough amount of waste to mantain the cycle.

Bettas don't need filters as they produce less waste than other fish, regular water changes will be enough to keep your water clean :)

Most people recommend filters for +5 gallons anyways XD

Ohh, Okay. Thank you :3 how often should I do water changes? I think 50% once a week? It's been too long since I had a betta.

A small tank with a betta can be cycled, but most people dont find it worth it unless the tank is 5 gallons or more. betta fish do produce very little waste, but that doesnt mean a tank with one cant cycle. Since they produce such little waste, there will just be less BB. Just enough to handle the bioload of the betta.

A good filter with bettas is the Azoo Palm filter, I have one and it is nice. It also has adjustable flow. runs quiet as well. I bought mine on Amazon for like $15 or less http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss...oo%2Caps%2C304
