Filter on my tank????

I have a 2.5gallon with a filter. I have been reading that betta's do not like the stream the filter makes...should I do something to stop the stream???

You can take a small water sponger just a little bigger than the filter opening and put it in there.

Some bettas love to play in the stream while others find it difficult to swim through and will avoid it. If your betta is active and travels through the outflow, then I wouldn't worry about it. If he does seem to be bothered then there are ways to slow the amount of water projected from the filter.

Thanks for the help! He does not seem to mind the stream, so I will leave it for now.

Tom (my betta) just swims REALLY quickly over to the stream then likes to slowly get pushed back. But I think you may want to put a sponge or cloth around it if he's stayingFishy Friends-
