Question Suggest a Filter for 8 Gallon Betta Tank

Hello!

I was looking to buy a filter for my 8 gallon Betta Tank. I have zeroed in on these 3 filters:

Dolphin HangOn Filter h-300 [Dolphin HangOn filter H-500] - Rs.550.00 : Indiapetstore.com, For Those Who Love Their Pets

Dolphin HangOn filter h-500 [Hang On Filters DOLPHIN] - Rs.900.00 : Indiapetstore.com, For Those Who Love Their Pets

Heto Sponge Filter Large [Largeheto] - Rs.450.00 : Indiapetstore.com, For Those Who Love Their Pets

Please help me choose the best one from the above 3 filters.

TIA

Thanks for your help!

I was thinking will the Dolphin h-300 (rated at 300 ltr/hr) be too powerful for the 8 gallon Betta tank? If it is then I'll have to go with the large sponge filter. Anyone else any suggestions?

I personally prefer submersible filters. I'm using a Tom (something or other) submersible filter I found at petco. Works really good in my divided ten gallon (I got 2, one for each side)

Yeah, you could use a Tom Rapids Mini-Canister. You would maintain it a bit differently than power filters or sponge filters, but it's very well-priced and you can customize the filter media and how to position the spray bar and intake. Sponge filters are another good option.

Thanks guys for all the suggestions... I settled with a Dolphin h-300 for my tank. I'm super glad that it does not produce too much current in the tank and my Betta is doing well with the filter running.

P.S. Sadly, Whisper filters are not available where I stay (India).
