My betta likes the current

He's very strange. Everything I've read says Bettas don't like the flow from the filter. My fish however likes to play in the current and the bubbles from the air pump. Every time I go into the room where he is, he's swimming where the current is the strongest. Go figure.

my betta's in a 10 gallon with a hang-on filter designed for a 30 gallon tank, so the flow's pretty strong in my tank. the betta never seems to have any problems: she never avoids the strong current and she frequently swims at the top where it's strongest.

yeah, i dunno if every piece of traditional advice is always helpful or applicable to your personal setup.

if i had to live all alone for fear of beating people up id get pretty bored too! lol maybe try just sticking a really small pump in there to give the current an extra boost, see if she still digs it!

He's got friends. He hangs out with a male platy. They're best buds. Always swimming together and they seem to look for each other when they are apart.
