The adjustable whisper filters are OKAY. The aquaclear adjustable filters are better.

It's just nice to lower the water flow rate during feeding.

It almost comes in handy to clean out the protein film from the floating in tank breeder containers.

If you are near a petco the petco power filter 20 is a pretty good find..Adjustable flow..The input tube is also adjustable so it can fit in a 5 gallon tank..it's registered for 5-20..I have one and I love it..Took out the pad and put marineland bonded filter media and cut it to fit the filter and now has twice the amount of area for beneficial bacteria.

My nearest Petco is literally a 30 minute drive, in a whole nother county o.o

I can't buy a new filter now anyways. The most I can buy at the moment is a heater and the fish. I so far have spent about $60 on fish stuff and I'm lucky my parents don't know. :/

The tank should be here either today (its past midnight right now), or tomorrow. Hoping for today so I can get started...

I don't have Pudge so Buddha can go in there after the tank cycles.

Good luck with your cycle!! And I hope you find Pudge! :) I'm going to start to cycle my 3.5 gallon with a sponge filter. My pH is pretty low though. :/ It's going to be hard with that 6.5 pH and the small tank size. I just noticed that you live in NYC!! A couple of my relatives live there. They probably don't even though what a Betta is. lol

thanks! :)

I wish you luck with your tank cycle! :D

And I actually used to live in the city, not any more. Moved out 2 years ago, but I'm hoping to return soon! D:

I actually just got some today :3

"Sometime" next week is the trip to Walmart, so I will most likely be getting a 5 gallon there, and then hopefully right to Petsmart to get Pudge! Petsmart is right next to my Walmart so I hope my mom will let me <3

I COULD wait until I return to my LPS to get a betta when I'm in college, but all they have are Veil tails. I'm hoping for a something other than that for my next fish to try some variety :)

Attached is the mesh I bought, and the second image is the one divider I made (It's not cut yet. I removed it soon after)
