I have no idea where the idea that bettas not likun filters come from. technically you can work any betta up to a decent current. with enough excercise, any betta can enjoy a nice flow.
Ao, What is a HOB filter? and how is it different?

My fishy's all but 2 have bubble stones, and they love the bubbles, one of my fishy's his name is Sapphire, a VT he literally goes in the flow of bubbles and lets it propel him upward from the bottom of the stone, all the way up to the top, and I have watched him do it over and over again..and it is hysterical..

Mine does the opposite thing when I'm pouring in new water. She'll go underneath the water current coming in and let her push her to the bottom, then she'll swim to the top and do it again. I always worry about her doing that though, because the current is so strong when I pour in the water. She doesn't do it with her whisper filter though, it does the same thing as pouring in water, only not as strong.

Sounds cute, it's funny how some like it, and some don't my VT if the current is under water, the (water is higher than the current) so he goes with the flow under the water, I see him (wave) through it, it's funny as anything, but if the water is coming out from the output, and spewing out fast, he goes past it, and goes for a heck of a ride, wheeee..they are too funny..It sounds like your girl is having fun, just like my Sapphire, I do watch to see if anything bad is happening..and so far it's fine, he has been doin it for months now..lol I have recently turned it down, just in case, but now he does it, just not as much..
