Also, is sand or gravel preferable?

Thx again.
As for filters, there are some that are adjustable. And you can always add some sponge into the cartridge area to help muffle the flow. Some betta enjoy it, my CT's have, and my VT too. But betta with more tail (long VT's, HM's, Deltas) have a harder time with current because it's the equivalent of having sails full of wind on a boat.

But each betta is different =)

Updated pic of Otis in his improved home. Anibus added with driftwood and cut back on current with plastic water bottle cut to fit over front of filter.

What a great looking tank set up! He's a lucky fish.

When you put in the driftwood, did you prepare it in any way? Wash it or anything? I am super scared of putting stuff in my tank as I fear it will somehow leech a chemical and hurt my fish. Any advice?

I just rinsed it in hot water and made sure my hands were clean and washed with anti-bacterial soap and dried before placing it.
