Hey guys. Aqueon Evolve8 owner. Even with the pump turned all the way down, it's too strong for my poor betta.
Just saw the baffling thread and five minutes later installed my c-shaped water bottle chunk on my filter output. Mr. Fishie and I are thrilled. He can actually swim in his tank now! I found he had vacuumed himself to the filter intake last night, presumably to get some relief from the strong current the filter produces, but I had to turn it on to try and clear my brown water (suspecting the driftwood I put in) Poor Mr. Fishie. He was able to get himself off pretty easily, though, after I did a few "are you dead?" taps on the tank wall, so I assume he voluntarily placed himself there.
So I did the water bottle baffle and it's working fantastically. The pump is humming happily, Mr. Fishie's sitting in beautiful suspension mid-tank, and I'm feeling good. Only thing, though...
It's so ugly!
Anyone have any ideas of more attractive baffling solutions? I mean, I guess it isn't too bad (it is clear after all) but I'd really like to try something else.
