My name is Traci. My Bettas name is Quill (though, that may be a given at this point). I dont know anything about specifics but hes a beautiful blue with red accents. I have had him since June and he is currently housed in 1 gallon Aqueon tank, with filter. Though I think the tank is a little small, I have been happy with it, its easy to upkeep but recently (the last month) or so it has started leaking from where the filter "clips" onto the tank. Today I purchased the Fluval Chi 5 Gallon tank. I havent really taken it out of the box yet but have read some reviews, while most are positive and most people with Bettas like it, there are a couple that have me really worried because it talks about how the Betta can get stuck in the filter. I have looked and looked at the filter and I am not sure how that is possible but I have seen a couple "reviews" on it that state it has happened. Though, those posts were written in 2010 and maybe Fluval has addressed the issue by now. Who knows.
So, that's how I ended up here on this site. I wanted to see if anyone has experience with the Chi and can let me know how big of a concern it is that he can get stuck? Please be gentle with me as like I said, I am extremely new to having any fish at all, I sort of got Quill on accident but I am totally in love with him! He's such a sweet little guy. I just want to make sure he's safe and continues to thrive and be happy.
