Question Filter baffling Questions...!

As i say in recent threads i'm so excited to be getting my male VT a new 10gal. but, the filter is a penguin biowheel 100 and i'm nervous the intake and/or out flow will be too strong - , -. People tell me i can baffle using fluval sponges,water bottles, etc. but how exactly?!?!?! i don't wanna baffle it wrong and have issues - . -. i want my boy to have the best new suprise home :3

I used a water bottle cut in half and duct taped to my filter. Does a decent job. Uploading a video of my filters baffled really fast for ya :3

I do not baffle my intakes because they don't seem to bother either fish too much but you may need to watch carefully after installing yours to see if it does bother your fish. I often catch the betta swimming against the current of the outtake just for fun (I think :P ).

I have a Marineland Biowheel in the betta tank and two 40-60g Tetra filters in the goldfish tank. I used tape but a rubber band would probably work better :p

Tankuu :3 I love my rings too xD
