I know the tan and filter but it will be too powerful. They do make a filter that takes care of 5-10 gallons and it is a power filter and that would be fine for the tank. I am sure you could exchange for that at walmart. It would be perfect fr that size tank. I have a 5.5 for a Beta and use that filter.Joan
