Anyway I won 5 tiny little fish at our local state fair and purchased the 1 gallon starter tank kit they sell at Walmart. It said it came with an under gravel filter system but I don't understand how it works? All it is, is a piece of plastic with holes in it. There is no hook up to anything. How is this supposed to be used?
Also is there any other gentle choices for a filtration system for a 1 gallon tank? Attachment 245945

Sorry, but you do not get to dictate how a person responds about your tank size when we have a rule on this site about the ethical treatment of the critters we keep. Only the site staff, like us mods or the admins are allowed that responsibility.
As others have stated, unfortunately those 5 "tiny" fish can grow to be about a foot long each. I have a few of them in my pond. The tank that you have them in is inadequate. The new filter will work, for now, but you will have a future of daily water changes and unhappy fish.
I'd strongly suggest if you plan on keeping them and keeping them healthy, that you get past the "criticism and complaining", realize that even though they are fish they are still living creatures and treat them with care instead of dismissing them as disposable.
