We are new betta owners! My boys each picked one male betta as I was told they were the easiest for new fish owners. Initially we got 2 separate 2.5 gallon betta starter kits, but the filters in them did nothing even though they worked. We wanted tanks that had filters to cut down on water changes for me since I am going to be taking care of the tanks for now as they are pretty young still.
So I returned them and got this one:
Top FinŽ 5.5 Gallon Aquarium Starter KIt
We got a divider and have it split in half. Of course the filter is on one side, so my one son's fish will have to deal with it.
My question is: how do you know the filter is too strong for your betta and that you need to "baffle" it? Do all filters need to be baffled for bettas?
