i bought a aqueon 2.5 for a betta i bought on impulse. which would be a better filter? the one that came with it or a sponge filter? here's the tank which has both filters running currently.

I'm a sponge filter fanatic all the way!
That filter can harm your fish's fins... it did to one of mine a verry long time ago. Plus is a strong current.

I don't use the one that came with the tank but since it's 2.5 I don't even run any filters just water changes.

Sponge is the best way to go
I've converted my carbon filter to sponge. Once you go sponge, you won't wanna go back ;)

Sponge all the way. I will never put a power filter in with bettas again. Tosses them around and tears fins like mad.

yeah the only reason i dont use only sponge filters is i have a husky and even though he stays away from my tanks i still get dog hair in them. and when i clean the sponge filter most of the hair ends up back in the tank. i do think i will use the sponge on this tank its my smallest. thanks for your help.
