Question Perfect filter with no problems

So i'm done. Like so done to a point that i want to punch a hole through the wall. I been fixing this filter since the beginning. I tried every single method in the book to fix the strong current or the strong flow. Can someone please show me what is the best filter with no baffling i'm so sick and tired of dealing with this stupid filter.

What size is your tank? I have a couple tetra filters that are great.

I have the one for a 10 gallon and one just like it that they might have stopped making that has an adjustable flow for a five gallon.
They're quiet, I've never had a betta sucked in and my daughters likes to sleep right next to the filter, and the flow is perfect for the bettas.

Sponge filters are cheap and great for bettas, since they produce minimal flow.

You can get larger sponge filters that would work great in a 10 gal. I love my sponge filters.

I agree with Matt. Lots of Betta keepers running sponge filters. Here's the sponge filter thread.
SPONGE FILTERS: Why and How

These are top-of-the-line sponge filters and an explanation of how they work.

You can get cheaper ones on Amazon.

But does the sponge have to be a certain size for a 10 gallon?

I think most sponge filters on the market will work in a ten gallon.
