I use this on my intake tubes, looks much nicer than my old nylons. It may cut your input down enough that you don't need to baffle the output. But you could also get a black sponge and put a slit in it and put that on your output. You may need to anchor it with a rubber band though.

Personally, I think Korwhord has some beautiful bettas, and Aquastar71, interbettas, and betta_afinity. Of those, only bettafinity is in the US, so the other three would have pretty expensive shipping costs.

Kuklachica, thanks :) (Bwahahahahahhahaaaa! another reason to stop by Petcoto oggle at their bettas!)

yes it does slow the outflow too *youppi*
but does the panty hose over the intake keep the filter from doing it's job, from sucking out all the bacteria...
do u have to rinse it everytime u do a water change...

When I first put sand in my 20 long I thought that it would clog my filter if I didn't put stockings on my filter (lol!), but my sand has never even stirred and I found my filter was not really intaking anything at all. Just my opinion/experience.

I use black pantyhose.. boom.. problem solved you hardly notice it.

I prefer to use the fluval filter sponge for my filters with in take tubes.. the only time I use pantyhose are in tank filters

Get yourself an AquaClear foam insert & rubber band it to the front of the water return on the filter. It's even adjustable that way - pull it up, it allows more water to flow & pull it down farther, it slows the water down.

That is what I use on my betta tanks, anyway. Granted, not beautiful, but it sits high enough on the filter the lid pretty much hides it. Besides, it's one more place for the good bacteria to grow! :)

Hope that helps!

Gah! D: apparently there was a brief power surge, and my filter turned off several hours ago, and has since been trying to run without water in the filter area! I don't think it's broken, because there was enough water pooled where the whirly thing that the U tube feeds into to keep it from breaking, and now that it's full of water, it's running fine. But my filter media has been dry for god knows how long! Will the lack of water in my filter and airation in the tank have killed my cycle?!

The "whirly" thing is the impeller. :)

Guess the only way you can tell about the cycle is to test your water.

Does a smaller fish mean he is younger? My guy looked pretty small in the cup compared to some others. I want to see a bubble nest!
