Betta tank

I got a 2.5 gallon glass aquarium for my GFs Betta and I was curious what would be the best filter for it? All she have in there now is a cheap little air driven thing that she had before.

She has a single bulb 25 watt incandescent hood with reflector, what would be a good plants?

It's her work in progress, questions, comments or concerns?

Well I would like to say that's a beautiful betta. Male or female? And they sale aquaclear hob filters cheap for a tank that size. That's all that tank would need. Get one rated for maybe 5 gallons and put a small round air stone in it to keep it oxygenated.

In another note, I'm getting a betta next week for my community tank!!!

Its a male half-moon, not sure what color variant it is, I would say it's fairly close to a mustard gas.

I was looking around online and it seems the smallest Aquaclear is the AC 20(100) which is way to big for a 2.5.

The filter is a little internal sponge thing that is driven by a air pump.

I'd look into internal filters, some of them look pretty cool.

Try this one out.

http://www.petco.com/product/102601/...r-Filters.aspx

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
