Filter options for a 1 gallon bowl

I kinda want to get a filter since my bowl is getting yucky, but the question is are there any cheap(er) options?

What do you have in there right now? I would suspect that the flow might be too strong with any filter.

Anyways, you could go with a sponge or Hagen elite mini filter. Or just more water changes

I don't really understand how that's working...

BTW there are shrimp in the bowl.

Try the Tetra Whisper Internal 1-3 gallon filter. I have it in my 3 gallon and with a lower bubble rate from the air pump it would work great for a small tank.

10G - Low Tech Planted [ Chocolate Neos, MTS, Tracked Nerite / Anubias Nana, Windelov Java Fern, Water Wisteria, Dwarf Sag ]
29G - Non Planted Native Tank [ Creek Chub, Yellowfin Shiners, MTS / Water Wisteria ]
