That's odd if he'd do that and the flow isn't too strong.

Or maybe it is for him, and it doesn't look that way to me, he's not used to a filter, he's never had one, and since I am not home during the day, in the begining I leave it off, then when I was home I tried running it to get him used to it, but no..he just couldn't handle it..:(

Yeah! I look at the picture again and it does have a clear top but I still love the design more than the 5.5 gal since it look like it's going to fit perfectly on my desk at school :) Hope i won't have trouble with the filter :(

Could be the noise if he's never had one before and the flow seems to be ok..Just let him get used to it.

@Hann, no the Hawkeye 5 gal tank, comes with filter..it's a great tank, but I opted not to use the filter.

In that case I would say the filter probably hums and it's freaking him out which he should get used to.
