Question filter question

Hi,
what's the best filter for a tank smaller than 10 gallons - about 6 - 8 gallons?

I would just use a filter rated for a 10gal. If the flow is too great, you can increase the water level of the tank & place a piece of filter foam/sponge over the intake to reduce the suction. Aqueon makes a small filter for a 10g & tetra makes a small filter as well but its an internal filter (sits in the tank) which takes up room. Hope this helps!

I believe there is an aquaclear mini... If it's still available, I believe it's rated for 5-15
