I wonder why yours gets stopped up? Maybe the motor is bad. Do you ever clean the impeller? Sometimes they slow up if there's gunk in them.
this is what i need!
i need to put some gunk on my motor!!!
cuz this filter's pump is too strong for my bettas.
btw... for this filter, do you have
new filter cartridge every month
OR take it out, and just simply rinse it with tap water?
