1 Gallon Filter

Anyone got a suggestion for a small filter for a 1 gallon tank? I don't want to use a sponge filter or something big like a Red Sea Nano. I was thinking of just using an aerator that allows the bubbles to flow through a tube filled with gravel. I'm not too sure. I plan on keeping a few RCS in there.

Toms Nano filter is my choice. I use them in two 2.5 tanks. Very effective and customizable media. Get mine at PetSmart...

The Hagen elite mini will give your fish a tornado in that small of a tank. I had the flow on its lowest setting and it was too much for my 5.5. Now in my 10 I have it on at 1/4 flow and it is just right, with my HOB filter too.
how about an Azoo Palm?

That is the Toms filter I was talking about. Adjustable flow, really useful spraybar or adjustable head option, and sponge prefilter built in...
