Eclipse Tanks and Bettas

I was looking at getting an Eclipse 6 for my office. I know I could build my own system for similar cost but for my office I prefer the more sleek package of the Eclipse.

Anyways, my question is do Eclipse systems create too much current for a male betta? I've heard some people claim they do but I have never been able to have it confirmed.

Hey there. I have an eclipse3 System. The current is pretty strong, but you can make a filter baffle pretty easily that will make the current nonexistent. My HM Mo seems to like it just fine. there are DIY instructions I replied to on one of my previous posts. check through 'em and you'll find it...easy and cheap I made mine out of a 20 oz water bottle. Because of the design of the eclipse filter (which I do LOVE), you have to modify very slightly I have paper clips (which do not touch the water or the bio wheel) holding it into place on the filter casing. A week in and it is just fine.

Hope this helps!
