filter recomindations

I have noticed that my filters output is a little strong for my 10 gallon tank. My corries dont seem to like the bottom current and my neons avoid the area of the tank where the filter is. My current filter is a tetra wisper 10i internal power filter, and I am looking for an afordable and good quality replacement that does not produce a big current from the return. What do you recomend?

What kind of air stone do you recommend? (looking for something that can go in the substrate and be completely hidden,

What kind of air pump do you recommend? (something with the…
