Filter too strong?

I've heard in a lot of places that betta fish don't like a lot of current. Will a Tetra Whisper 10i in a 5 gallon tank be too much?

Isn't that just a ait pump?

Bettas typically do not like a lot of current. But depending on your tank needs, you may be forced to have some current. If you have to have some current, just try to make sure there is an area where your betta can take a break.

In my 4 gal, I have to have some current, but the way the flow goes, there are a couple spots where he can find some peace. In my 30 gal, there are many places where either the flow is intense or next to non-existent. But my two bettas in there love both areas.

It serves as both an air pump and a filter, I think. I do have a small cave in the tank, though. Would that help block some of the current and provide the betta with a place to rest both in the cave and behind it?
