I got a 10 gallon kit from Petco a few weeks back to split between two of my boys. However, one of them died, and I ended up getting a King, so the 10 gallon was then declared his. It just finished cycling, so I added him into it today, but the filter is too strong for him. Its absolutely LOADED with sponges in an attempt to slow down the flow. Two sponges inside, and one on the out flow. When that wasn't enough, I added the plastic bottle baffle that's on this site, but that doesn't seem to be enough either. Its non adjustable, as far as I can tell, and I don't know what else to do. I'd rather not have to replace the filter, because I'm strapped for cash at the moment. If he absolutely cannot get used to the filter, then I can replace it, but only as an absolute last resort.
He's only pushed around by it when he's close to it, but I think its stressing him out. He got extremely stressed (80% or so color lost, very pronounced stripes) when he found his reflection on the back and was flaring at it for upwards of an hour or two. I've taken care of that problem, but he hasn't gotten back to his normal coloring, and I think part of it is because of the filter.
If you need any more information, just ask.
