Check out the Dennerle Nano Corner Filter. A good shrimp filter makes a good betta filter as well, imo.

I really like the Aqueon 3 gallon internal filter. If a betta is all you have in the tank it would be sufficient. I like it because it is very low flow so the betta doesn’t get thrown around the tank.

Sponge filters are best for a Betta as it doesn't create much flow. I use a acquaclear 20 on a 5.5g with a male Betta and on its lowest setting, the flow is not an issue for the betta

Are these quiet for a bedroom?

Mine doesn't make any noticeable noise. I have mine in the living room, next to my couch, where I watch tv If it was noisy I wouldve gotten rid of it.

I don’t know if that’s the one referred to, I just wanted to say the one you have pictured I have in my zooplankton tanks and I like it. It isn’t noisy, but you do hear the bubbles from the air pump.

Good to know. The 3 gallon Aqueon may be a fit for my purpose. One betta, 2 merited, planted tank. I don't usually like air pumps, they vibrate lol

I see you're not a fan of an air pump. Maybe a Marina S15 or S20 will work, less than $19 bucks. Silent, submerged pump so it is self priming, full flow control and large media basket.

Customer that filter here.

I am running on my 10 gallon tank. I run 2 of its big brothers on my 55 gallon tank. All 3 of them are completely silent. I wouldn't know they were running if I couldn't see the water flowing out of them. I have a smaller one in my Amazon cart right now for my 5.5 gallon tank. The flow can be turned way down for a Betta.

These filters are some of the least expensive on the market. They have plenty of room in them for media customization and have a knob on top to control the water flow. They self start after a power failure. They may make a bit of noise when restarting after I have turned them off during a big water change. Just pour some tank water in there until all the air is out and it is back to silent.

My oldest one has been in service this time for 3 1/2 years but was used for several years before that. The newest big one has been running like a champ for just over a year now. I just started using the small one last month so can't say how well it is going to hold up. I don't expect to have any problems with it though.

Hello Amy...

A small fish tank doesn't need a filter. You can combine pea sized gravel with small pieces of lava rock, which makes a neat looking tank bottom and use an air pump, plastic tubing and an air stone for quite a bit less than a filter and you never need to buy and replace the filter media. You just need to change out half the tank water every few days and feed the fish just a little every other day.
