Try a sponge and rubber band technique? If that does work you can always take a piece of sponge and shove it into the outflow or better yet, piece of cloth wrap it around the outflow it on with a rubber band, that's what I did with my Fluval Spec filter.

My betta is in a 5 gallon with a filter similar to yours, heres what you do, Take some aquarium floss and cut it to size and gently plug the part where the water is pooring onto the Filter pad, then cut a bit and stuff into the drain port I think on yours its running to the dront of the tank? But that will slow the water down while still being well filtered.

We are just getting of topic now but thats ok :D conversations switch topics. And as far as the sponge goes would one that you use for cleaning table tops work? (We have a pack of new ones) and if that wont work, what kind of cloth. Oh i also just changed my avatar to a picture of my fish (sorry its from the back but it was the only one in focus)

No! Not the cleaning table top types, those have chemicals in it I believe, kitchen sponges are not allowed, try going back to your LPS tomorrow and getting aquarium sponge or spongey filter media to work with.

As for cloth this is a bit iffy, I'm using cloth that's for wiping the floor when it gets wet, it hasn't been touched by soap before. So be careful what kind of cloth you use.

Would this kind of cloth work? i found it in my pantry.


It says on the packaging: "Ideal for diapering (tee hee), burping, changing, nursing, plus: household dusting & car washing" it doesn't have any chemicals on it im pretty sure considering it is ment to be used for baby care purposes.

Yeah that would work, cut a piece off that can wrap around your filter output, then tie a rubber band onto it. That should lessen the flow and not disturb your Betta.

So in a 10 gallon or larger I know Rosebaras are compatable with bettas, and the occasional tetra, what else?
