I have 2 tanks, and although the boys don't seem to mind the filter too much I thought I would try making the baffle for them to see if they are a little happier. 1 is real small and I can't tell if he is swimming in the current or being washed around by it. Both filters are whisper internal filters (the smallest size). My question is, both my bettas like to hang out behind the filter, between the filter and tank side. Will the homemade baffle hurt them if they go inbetween the baffle covered filter and the tank wall? thank you for your time

Any idea on how to baffle the intake? Mine is a 200gph Penguin 200 Bio-wheel and all...

I just did the ol' sponge in the outflow trick... Works like a charm yet the water still gets fully rotated through the filter. Because I watch the teeny tiny particles floatin around haha

I finally got around to making the baffle today. I did not have a water bottle so I used a plastic drinking cup. Works great!

i would think it would just be simpler to just choke down the intake by putting a sponge in the intake tube, but if the outtake baffle works, the good enough.
