Hi everyone I just finished setting up my new 2.5 Gallon tank (a huge upgrade from what he was in before) for my Betta and he seems to like it. The only problem is the filter is right near the plant in the tank. Should I move the plant away from the filter nozzle? He doesn't seem to go near the plant and I think it is creeping him out
Do you only have one plant? Are you using the plant to baffle the outflow from your filter? If it's the latter, you could baffle the filter a different way and keep the plant where it is and get another on the other side.
I have 3 swords along the back of my 2.65g and one is next to the filter, but my fish doesn't seem to mind since he swims straight up along the side in and among the leaves. I baffled in the intake and outflow of my filter so it's pretty calm water around it.
