What kind of vaccum do you have? Python? Is there a hole in the hose?

I have a question about filtration for fancies....Is it best to get two adjustable filters and turn them down a bit as opposed to getting one filter and putting it on full blast?

5G - 1 betta: orange dalmatian VT male "Ty"
29G - 1 orange fantail goldfish "Goldeen"

I'd say baffle it at the very least. My oranda loves swimming through the current even though it pushes him down but he's a dork.

But if you can do two adjustables and turn them down I'd go for that. I've always loved having two filters compared to one big one.

Yeah. I mean I can see a fancy being even more sensitive to current than a betta, because of their fat bodies....The thing with baffling just one is that there is less gph...So that's why I said two that are baffled or turned down, because goldfishes need a lot of filtration :/
