I am trying to lessen the intake of my filter so there is not as much outtake. I have a plastic bottle for the outtake but if I don't put something over the intake it is too strong for my Betta or he'll get stuck to the intake.
My question is: is it harmful to the filter media? About and inch to inch and 1/4th doesn't have water going through it. I want to fix it by taking some layers of panty hose off the intake but that makes the flow to strong for my Betta then he gets tossed.
So would leaving that part dry be okay? The is a cycled tank also.
