Well in that case just build one!!! A small PVC pipe would work great with a small wet/dry pump with a control valve on it

Aqueon Aquarium Power Filters at PETCO

They have different sizes and the smallest being rated 5-20 so it may be a little much. Internal filters are pretty cool just not the air driven ones

thats about the same size as a aquaclear 20.

for a tank that small a sponge filter will be ur best bet.
there r smaller HOB filter but i wouldnt bother buying one.
a DIY sponge filter with filter floss will work.

Honestly I would just upgrade the tank itself. :/ 2.5 gallons is a tad small even for a betta. The Tetra Crescent I have is 5 gallons and comes with its own Whisper filter and light, which is nice.

I just bought the tank, it's bigger than a bowl the fish was in. The 2.5 is 12 x 6 x 8 , the Betta is very active and swimming around and seems to have plenty of room.
