two would be great 1 not enough...
i'm trying the aquatop 15 UV now. it's a nice little filter, NOT a lot of media room soft flow though (softer then palm) and has a skimmer...
do NOT use the skimmer for a betta (trust me on that one.. oops)
it's $$$$ but if you want uv not bad for a small hob
fit MORE media in my palm though ....
using it with charcoal/purigen after medicating a tank or just as a UV hit for the betta tank as mine will EAT anything in their tank (or the next tank if they can see it).. keeps the alge at bay.

As I mentioned above, you can pack the filter full of floss and other media, you can use a smaller impeller and there are various other methods if there's too much flow. You can even put some sort of a baffle on the outflow to dampen things (there are several versions on the forum to give you an idea of what to create if necessary).
I'm betting just turning down the flow all the way will be sufficient.

You use a Dremel and cut it. Could also use a hacksaw to cut it to the length you'll need so it fits in your tank.

I haven't tried it personally but have read some positive feedback about the AZOO Mignon 60. It's about $14 on Amazon!
Also, AC represent! Lived there all my life until I moved to CA.

Have you ever tried a Tom's Mini Canister? It works great on small tanks as well!

Is your tank the Deep Blue Professional 3-gallon tank?
If so, the AC30 will be fine. You'll just have to use a Dremel to cut down the intake pipe, turn the flow all the way down and fill it full with filter floss. If it's still too much flow, you can swap out the AC30 impeller for the AC20. I use 20s on my 3gal tanks and love them.
