Whats a good filter for ecocomplete?

I just recently purchased ecocomplete. The issue is I currently have an undergravel filter which doesnt work at all with this substrate. I currently have the top part of the filter in which isnt working well either. What a good filter for a 10 gallon tank? It has a betta and 3 otto cats. It also contains live plants

You could do a sponge filter, which is one of my favorites for a betta and a highly underrated filtration type. You could use it with your airpump that you already have for your undergravel filter so ti would be quite cheap to setup. The alternative is pretty much any filter that hangs on the edge of the tank. Just make sure it had an adjustable flow control so you can turn it down for your betta.

How would I make a sponge filter?

Right now the filter is running but at a very low current. Its so low that the biological wheel isnt spinning

You can do a DIY sponge filter or just purchase one.

They look like this:

They come in different sizes for different size tanks.

DIY sponge filter. If you already have an air pump all you need is a sponge :) In a 10 gal with just a betta and 3 otos I believe a sponge filter will be adeqaute.
