Divided ten gallon, sponge filters?

I have a divided ten gallon, right now I only have one betta who lives on the side with a filter. I want to get rid of the HOB and use one sponge filter in each section. I'm going to buy an air pump, airline tubing, and the sponge filters. Would these be big enough: http://www.amazon.com/Jardin-Aquariu...+sponge+filter ? Thanks.

One of those is enough for your entire 10g. You can put that between two dividers along with your heater. There are many advantages to a double divider:
---hard to see through
---hard to jump or breech
---equal flow of filtered and heated water
---keeps the current down
---hides the plumbing

Or you can go with two of the smaller size. [ame]http://www.amazon.com/Jardin-Aquarium-Cylinder-Sponge-Filter/dp/B005LMQCW2/ref=pd_sim_sbs_petsupplies_2[/ame]

I have a sponge filter on each side of my divided 10. That way I don't have to worry about flow or one side not getting filtered enough.
