Filtration devices in breeding tank

Is it a good idea to have a filtration device in the breeding tank, maybe one that does not create a lot of current? i worry the stagnant water and poo might not create a suitable growing environment for my future fry. i also have live plants and mystery snails in this breeding tank...

I looked in my betta book and it doesn't say anything about filtration in the breeding tank but it did say not to aerate the tank because the current will interfere with the structural integrity of the bubblenest.

I have a book called The Betta Handbook by Robert J Goldstein PhD, which is very informative and gives details on breeding. Thats where I'm getting my info. lol

Do the corner filters have a fairly low flow?

PetCo, they're called "Small World Filter Kit", it's great and I highly reccomend it.
