I'am looking to replace my current Fluval Chi filter (square box). Does anyone recommend a filter that is silent and not a lot of movement for this 5gallon tank? Yes it is for my Betta.

From what i read the Tetra 3i is very noisy because of the bubbling noises it produces. I would like something super silent like my current filter.

Aqua el micro fan filter.
Again, it's next to my bed and i can't hear it. Plus points against a i25 is the it has an adjustable flow rate (super for bettas) and a directional nozzle. It's aslo super tiny :good:

About fortnightly. I've found that the flow rate on mine does drop a little bit after the first week, but not alot. But mine is in a heavily stocked tank :good:
