I made an account just to say thank you! I got my betta Momo right after Christmas and had him in this tiny tank from Think Geek: http://www.thinkgeek.com/computing/u...ts/e5dd/?srp=2

I have a friend who warned me it might be too small, but I kept him in there for a couple of weeks. He just looked SAD. And he wasn't eating anything.

So last night I went out and bought this one: http://www.amazon.com/Tetra-29008-Wa...cmu_pg__header

I loved it, besides the powerful waterfall. To loud and too much current! My friend pointed me to this baffle idea and I created one today! Its not pretty but it does the trick:



Now Momo is happy and swimming around in his big castle. Just gotta work on getting him to eat :) Thank you!!

Yeah!! Its very amusing when he peeks his little head out of one of the windows. He's kinda shy :)

For the sponge idea, would any ol' sponge work? I tried the plastic water bottle baffle, and it's still pushing the little guy around:

Thanks for this idea. Before I put Arthur in I didn't think it was that strong but on the filter side of the tank he was getting pushed around. I made it a little bigger than the flow and it works great.
