Wow! Guess I need to remove some water from the 2.5 and my 5 gallon :o Does the filter work good for you? Thank you for telling me btw! Was wondering why I never saw any suction coming from the filter. Guess I read the instructions wrong.

Yeah the filter seems to work alright for me, there are better ones out there, but I can't complain about these I guess :) I've had the one in my 5 gallon going longer and it seems to do a good job - I actually just put the filter in my 2.5 gallon today because I was tired of there being a film on the top of the water lol

I keep seeing all of the little fry when I go into the store. They're so adorable - I love what a mystery they pose.

Oh one question, does the less water make the filter noisier then before?

It worked for my 2.5 gallon but when I lessened the water for my 5 gallon it started to suck my betta backwards... But even when the water was high it had a strong current so I am contemplating getting rid of the filter all together in the 5 gallon...

I wouldn't get rid of the filter - just baffle it :) if you search on here there are several posts about how to do that.

Got new baby betta from petco yesterday

Yesterday I got a baby betta from petco. He/she is living in a three gallon tank with a heater, two plants and a cave. He was very active and swimming happily around the aquarium yesterday. I fed him crushed pellets. He always swam in a weird way though. Today I woke up and found him floating at the top in a weird way and then sinking to the bottom. He is having a really hard time swimming right now. I think he has swim bladder disease. I put some aquarium salt in and Im not going to feed him for a day or two. Should I put him back in the cup he came in and float it in the tank so he does not have a hard time getting air? What should I do?
