smallest filter for 1.8g shrimp tank

I'm looking for a filter small enough for a 1.8g shrimp tank that's shrimplet friendly. (They're such tiny little guys)

I have a home made sponge filter in there at the moment but it's just not doing the job well enough.

Any suggestions? I've looked in all lfs here and there's nothinga available so I'm having to purchase online.

i wouldn't bother with a filter. i would use a sponge filter instead. there are plenty of DIY videos online, or you can buy one. they're also beneficial for shrimps because they love to eat the debris that gets caught to the external sponge.

You must have missed it in my first post but they already have a sponge filter
