question....

i noticed he stays on one side of the tank. the side opposite of where the filter is. i know they dont like currents. think the current the filter is creating is keeping him away from the other side of the tank?

my gf said that i should turn the filter off during the day and have it on at night. but by doing that i can add corys . but do you think that will encourage him to explore the rest of the tank?

Better to leave the filter running all the time. You could easily baffle the flow so it's not so strong.. there's a sticky thread here regarding how to do that.

Yes the water bottle baffle is the easiest thing to make ever. And more than likely you will have all the supplies at home.
