Question is Aqueon Betta bow 2.5 ok for sam

I have a female betta named Sam. We have her in a 2.5 gallon Aqueon betta bow 2.5. I am wondering if this tank is ok for her or if the filter is too strong.

you can always slow down the filter if its too strong.
What type of filter?

Your betta will be fine in the Aqueon mini bow 2.5 gallon tank. I have both of my betta's in those tanks. If the filter proves to be to strong for your betta all you will have to do it remove the filter tube and insert a piece of filter fiber, filter foam, or filter sponge in it. This will slow down the flow.

I just started using this tank in the 5 gallon, and the filter is a little too strong for my fish, so this post caught my eye. I've never slowed a flow before; can I just get these supplies at a fish store?

@ jeremywadejunior yes you can buy those things at your local fish store. I personally put a piece of sponge in each of my filter tubes. It helped slows the water suction down and the water current doesn't bother my betta's at all now.

As said above, the intake can take a piece of aquarium foam or sponge.. the outflow can be baffled as shown here: http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=30139

Although I am sure that will work from some filters that will not work for the filters that come with the Aqueon betta bow. For the betta bow filter you would need to fill the filter tube.
