Calm water???

So my betta plays in the current her little filter makes for hours on end...now from what I read, I thought bettas don't like high filtration or the strong current...I know she's not stuck in it, she's a powerful swimmer and can get out of the current no problem...does anyone else experience this? maybe Ruby is just an odd girl, hahaha

Every betta is different. Some like it and some don't.

My Sister's fish LOVES the filter. He swims behind it (plenty of room for him) and he swims against the current all the time, and can get out fine, so your Ruby isn't alone. Pretty Ironic, on my part, because I have a horse named Ruby :3

Mine likes it too. He's always swimming through it. It's strong too, it pushes him almost all the way to the bottom of my 16 gallon tall, which is pretty far. I love how different they all are. Some are laid back, some are daredevils!

16 Gallon-4 Corys, 3 Endler's, 5 Celestial Pearl Danios
10 Gallon: Male King Betta-Kilo
5 Gallon: Male Marble HM-Logan
5 Gallon: Dwarf Puffer-Huey
5 Gallon: Male VT-Tango
