Sorry i think its 130 litres, there isn't much options on filters at my store, I don't want to use a external filter since its too much trouble for me. This is annyoing me!!! there isn't much internal filter out there, for 130 litres tank. I had look its ethier 100 litres, 150 or 180.
They have product called tank maid (150 litres), I never heard of it before and I tried google but I didn't see much information or reviews.

Aqua one H500 Hang on Filter 500l/hr? would that be suitable for my fish tank.

Since I had trouble with the external filter already I'm not interested in purchasing one since the pipes/tubes kept bursting/kinks off and had flooded my room. I did purchase filter and it was too strong then I return yesterday where the guy recommended me to purchase this filter which is called aquatopia but he says to get 200l to 400l since its weak but suitable for my size of tank !!! It's worser then before my betta can't swim even half way!! I will go and return it later today!!!!

With filter do you want the machine to create bubbles or ripples in the fish tank ? To ensure that the fish is getting enough oxygen.

You don't need an airstone even without a filter. There is enough oxygen in the water, don't worry about that. If I'm not mistaken the external filter you bought was second-hand? Buying new will eliminate the issues you had.

I prefer internal it's all lot easier for me. I am bit concern since there isn't much movement in my water from the new filter. The fishes seem to be hanging near the top ( I'm not sure if they think its feeding time since its in the morning Australia)

If they begin to gasp at the surface then make sure that the "output" breaks the surface of the water. For example a canister filter can have a spray bar or just a tube end. The end of the output could easily fall below the water line especially if you over fill the tank during a water change. When that happens the surface tension isn't broken and the fish begin to gasp at the surface for air. Raise the out put or lower the water line and the problem is solved... within an hour or so they will stop and resume normal activity.

Expect them to be very stressed when put into a new tank. After all they've been chased with a net, bagged and a sloshy car ride. Quiet time, lights out and often no food till a few hours later is a good practice with new fish too.
Give him a bit of time... maybe he swimming around already this morning?

Getting back to plants, briefly, the so-called plant bulbs are incredibly cheap and prolific.
