I might just return it and pick up either a marine land hexagon tank...it's 5 gallons and cheaper anyways.

Get some filter sponge, some thread and a needle and tie the sponge to the vent.

I put some craft mesh in it but I might just return it, it def doesn't feel worth the 70$.

I have a couple of these. I have a skimmer on each and then I put silk plants just in front to keep my bettas from getting back in their and up against it. Haven't had a problem with shredded fins.
