So I need to know of a QUIET (preferably silent, but very quiet I can work with too) 5 gallon filter. I have a 2.5 tank with a tetra whisper filter and I honestly hate the thing because of how little it filter and it's stupidly loud for how small it is (the filter is supposedly only for tanks 1-3 gallons big). <-that's what I have now, really dissatisfied with it

It depends on what sound is bothersome to you. If you don't mind the sound of the water bubbling, you can get a small sponge filter with a quiet air pump. Something like

I have that air pump on the carpeted floor below the tank. It hums very quietly, as long as it isn't touching anything. The sponge filter inside the tank does create a bubbling sound. Some people may find that bothersome; others may find it relaxing.
