Unhappy Another question... *sigh*

Hey,

just wondering which would be better...

I have a VERY high powered filter that I previously used for my goldfish and will obviously NOT be safe for my future betta... should I purchase a low power filter (my tank is 5g aquatech) such as a whisper or could I just buffer the one I have? (there is not much room to work with in this filter... it is a "hang on the edge" style and comes out more like a "waterfall".

sorry for all of this pain in the arse stuff!

I just posted this link in response to your and darkangel's question in the latter's thread, but I'll repost it here for convenience. Apparently I misspoke and meant baffle. Regardless, you might be able to utilize something like this: http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=30139 since you have the waterfall aspect to work with.

I take it you've just baffled your filter? That's excellent. I'm glad you were able to reduce the current on your power filter. I was worried it might be too strong.
