Are sponge filters very expensive, or would even a very small catfish or snails keep uneaten food and minor bacteria in check?
In a 2.5, you can't have any other fish. You could get a few ghost or Red Cherry shrimp, maybe. Ask someone like OFL or Myates *points above head at Myates* xD
A sponge filter would work in that tank. You'd have to get the tubing and the airstone thingy too, though.
