2.5g Filtration

Hey people,
I want to start up a 2.5 planted betta tank but I can't find any filters small enough that aren't awful.

Any recommendations?

Thanks!

Azoo Palm or Azoo Mignon 60 (they are the same filter). Tiny, adjustable flow, and you can diy the media.

Don't really need one. Plant it and do a wc every once in a while.

What kind of 2.5 gallon? If it's not a bowl you can use an Aquaclear 20.

It's not a bowl. It's a tank

I like my Hagen Elite Underwater Mini Filter, but all four of the above suggestions would work as well.

Hm. Well I saw a TONE of these tiny, off brand filters at meijers specifically designed for tanks around 1-3 gallons. I'll have to check those out next time I head in
