whats the perfect filter for bettas?

I'm using a 150gph marineland filter on my 20 gallon aquarium, and it absolutely rocks my bettas. I ~have~ to keep it baffled, or they get "blown" into the glass so badly. Keeping a filter baffled pretty much nullifies the aeration and water movement, and it isn't really "filtering" like it should be. What filter or type of filtration do you guys recommend using for my bettas?

i think the filter is suppose to be used on a bigger tank because on my 5 gallon the current is really strong so i have to turn it down a bit..im guessing its for 10 gallons or so

I would like to have a filter that I don't have to baffle, but it seems if I do that that It won't keep my tank filtered adequately.
