New project

Got a 10 gallon tank that I've had for a while and now I'm getting ready to set it up. I plan on making a decently planted tank with low light plants. Really leaning towards a 1 male betta tank. Or maybe a few zebra danios. But most likely the betta since I already have a 50 gallon community tank. But my question is since this will be a small tank in my room what is the quietest filter you guys have used or heard of.
I've heard of the fluval underwater filter and the tetra whisper internal filter just wondering if any one seen these filters in action and the quietest ones.

With my very limited experience with small tank filters I can't help with that, but I do have another suggestion. If this tank only has a Betta, and is planted, no filter is necessary.

I would not try this with active fish like the zebra danio, and BTW a 10g is not sufficient space for these anyway. But there are many "nano" type fish, most require soft water and are in the Cyprinids section in our profiles.

I had a 10g planted with Boraras brigittae (9), Corydoras pygmaeus (7), a couple shrimp, and a Dwarf Puffer. No filter, no light (in front of a south window). Worked fine, sort-of, but I eventually added a sponge filter and light. But my point is that the fish were fine.

Yea I want the betta. I figured I didn't need a filter but a small one would only make things better. Thanks a lot Byron
