I had 2 Chi, don't worry. So, I'm twice disappointed!

Sorry to hear about your fish! I have the smaller filter you're looking at getting and it seems to be working well so far.

If anyone is interested, I basically just stuffed some strips of foam in there so it's blocked. My betta has never shown interest in 'exploring' that pipe but I wanted to be safe.

Meve, I'm so sorry for your loss. I've always thought the fluvial chi was beautiful, but I'm having second thoughts now.

Sure. There are basically three foam strips, one in each little section. You can't see the third one peeking out because I cut it a little shorter so it is flushed with the pipe. I find these strips stay in there easily.

For sure. Glad it worked.

I would also like to add, anyone considering the Chi, this was a freak accident. It never should have happened, very unfortunate that is happened twice; but this doesn't happen to every betta in that tank.

Poor little guys.. sorry you lost them..

Also would like to add, that even though it is always ideal to make your tank as safe as possible.. I don't believe your fish were killed by the Chi.
A lot of times when a fish dies they end up caught by the filter intake since the water is gently moving towards it.
I would look at other factors while you were gone-
Were the heaters working properly? Did you check to see if they were still at the correct temperature?
How big of a water change did you do before you left?
Did you have an automatic feeder?
Those plants look to be dying which could easily cause toxins in the water- you may want to remove the dying leaves quickly.
Were they in constant dark? Light?
What was the chemistry of the water when you got home?

I'm sorry you lost both boys, but honestly don't think it was the Chi, as a freak accident happening at the same time like that is not a coincidence. I would have to say there is another reason for both of them to of passed.
