Filter recommendations for small tank.

Hello there everyone. I've recently gotten back into the betta fish game after a long hiatus, and thanks to all the good information here, I now realize I've been going about it all wrong for...well...forever. :P

Currently I have two 1 gallon bowls (getting bigger ones isn't in the budget at the moment, but I will later) for two fish, and I'm looking to get a good filter for each. I've only been able to find one undergravel filter on Amazon for that size, and I'd like to know if this one is any good, or if anyone has any others they'd recommend. The bowl is spherical by the way.

A filter isn't recommended for those small tanks....it will cause too much water current, and bettas don't really enjoy that...and good for you for joining and doing your homework. :)

Rather than get two fish, I'd just get one and spend the money you save on a larger bowl with a heater and filter, heater being the first priority. :) A 2 gallon drum bowl should be both cheap and attractive. :)

With a 1 galon tank you shouldn't even be considering filters... just keep the water clean by changing it fully a couple times a week.
