filtration in a 2.5 nano

I am trying to setup a new 2.5 nano for the first time. What do I need to have for filtration? I have a small whisper in there, but was wondering what you all used because in many of your pictures I cannot see a filter.

A lot of people have been using the Red Sea deco art nano filter (HOB) --- http://www.bigalsonline.com/BigAlsUS...anofilterclear

I ordered one, but can't comment on it since it's not here yet, but it's had good reviews which is why I bought it. Plus it's only $7.50 + shipping

I love my red sea nano filter
I even bought another one after having my first set up in case I need it on my other Ocean Free tank...

I have an aquaclear mini. I shorten the intake tube, and it works great on a 2.5. A power filter also makes a great way to disperse DIY CO2.

I use a Zoomed 501 without the spray bar and my tank is clean as a whistle. It houses CRS, Tiger shrimp and snowballs. All doing well with minimal care.
