I find the heater turns off automatically when the temperature is not there yet. Might be because of the slow circulation...

Thanks for the idea. Went out today and found this.

Cut it in 1/2 then zip tied it. Looks pretty clean. Went out to dinner and came back to a busy bubble nest making boy.

Very nice!!
Couldn't go out today, so improvised.
Just cut out a piece of extra foam and put it on the end.

Works pretty well, but it's temporary until I get what you guys are getting!

Did both of you put the filter on high?
And is your betta affected by the input current?
My betta loves resting on it.. Kinda worried but he seems to enjoy it and can swim away whenever he wishes.

Tank:

Excuse the bubbles, just had a change! :)

Didn't increase the flow... Thanks for letting me know. I was starting to wonder if I reduced it to the point that the outflow was completely hindered. I'll increase to medium and see how it goes from there. Nice picture. I posted a whole tank view on the Fluval thread.

Saw it! Lovely tank and your betta must be super happy :D
And yeah, I just think Fluval should've designed the flow in this filter better. It would've tossed around the smaller fish recommended in this tank, not only Bettas.

Ended up increasing to High. Nice little flow going now. I hope it's adequate ... Should be as it is an intake filter for the Fluval.

If you can't find the Mini Elite filter sponge, a Fluval Edge Pre-filter Sponge works well too!

Sidenote: My V has Neon Tetras, Harlequin Rasboras, and Zebra Danios. The filter pump is on lowest or second lowest. My two Spec IIs are on lowest setting and each house a Betta. Each Betta does sometimes choose to swim toward the output current. They seem to enjoy it. All other areas of the tanks are very calm. If this helps :)

My Betta start to play with the current after I apply the fix...

I also had a Spec II, the current is way too strong even at minimum... what I did was to stick the betta bed on the top cover and use it as a buffer...



For my Spev V, I turn my flow to the max after the fix, the current is very mild, I might even cut some part of the foam to make the current a bit stronger... I will see...
