Opinions of Filter for 5 gallon

Hey~
I was wondering if anyone knows of the best filter I could get for my 5 gallon? I have a whisper filter right now and it's sucking up all the sand and clogging 😅 it came with the tank and it was fine when I had rocks but now that I have sand it's acting up.

I was thinking about a dwarf puffer for my tank so pristine water quality is a must.

Thank you 😊

If you want a DP just go a sponge filter with an air pump. No sucking him in because they are not the best swimmers.

You could do a mini cannister, zoomed or finnex360, I've used the finnex for a while on my 7.5gal for a few months. Not all that impressed so I've ordered a zoo med 511. For hobs an aquaclear 20 would be fine.
