I think bettas also have an inbuilt 'camera sense' that tells them when you are about to come snap some photos.

He is a beautiful fish! And honestly, even when they're cooperating, the tank, the water, and the glare from the camera all work against you as can be a royal pain to get good betta shots. :)

All of my sponge filters are DIY, and I've been quite happy with them. :) There's a link on here somewhere...or you can check out youtube. If you do the youtube route, watch a few of them, everybody makes them a little differently, and you can pick and choose which method you like best. :)

A sponge filter with one of those air flow valves is probably the best - current wise. However ther eare ways to baffle the flow of HOB filters. I haev both tetra internal filters and aqueon quiteflows. Both of them have too strong of a current but if you stick some filter foam a/sponge at the outflow, it will slow down the current a bit. Also, putting large decor in front of the fiilter helps as well.

FOr my 5G, I have a tetra 10i and have a large, oversized silk plant and a few smaller silk plants over on the side with the filter. Plus I squeezed some foam into the out flow

This is the aqueon but same deal

The amount of noise an air pump makes is somewhat dependent on the surface it is on. I had my first one on the bookshelf near the tank. It put out an annoying hum. On a chance I moved it to the tile floor. Hum gone. I think that the fact that the tile floor is very rigid and heavy stops the floor from acting like a sound board in a piano. Of course, the quieter the air pump is to begin with the better results. BTW my air pumps are Tetra Whisper 20gal rated.

I hope this helps.
