I like internal filters, one of the in tank ones usually do nice, but I dont baffle my filters for my tanks my betta have yet to show signs of hating filters in when they are in a tank.

I have used the Tetra Whisper 10i internal filter. Its pretty good and if you keep the water level of the tank just right (see directions), there isn't much current. Different bettas react different ways though. Some don't mind current and others hate it.

Wow - just answered this in another thread. LOL! Anyway, here goes:

I have switched almost all my tanks to the Marina i25 internal filter:

They do a good job, they are quiet and if you push them totally underwater they make very little current. :)

Also, I have discovered you can also push the Whisper internal filters underwater with the same results - very little current. :)

So did you just cut/break the little hanging tab on the back of the whisper?

No, you can remove it. Just turn it sideways and pull - it should come off since it's made to.

You should have an extra suction cup that came with the filter. Put that in the hole it's supposed to go in to help stabilize the filter.

I use the AquaClear 20 on my betta's 10 gal. It's got an adjustable flow rate so you don't need a baffle, but even if you have it on the gentlest setting your water just gets re-filtered so it's still nice and clean, and has SO much space for good bacteria to grow on. I love it.

Thanks. I didn't know about the hook coming off but I knew about the suction cup. Thanks again.

You're welcome!

Just make sure you keep the hook part, though, just in case you decide to use it sometime down the road.
