oh ok, well that's at least reassuring. I was thinking the same think too about him liking the slight pull, like maybe he just likes the sport I guess? I haven't seen him do it again after that first time though.

Definitely keep an eye on him. My old betta was obsessed with doing that in my fluval spec. He did end up with his tail torn up. I put mesh on the inside of the filter to reduce the suction. Eventually I stopped using that filtration all together and put a sponge filter right beside the intake and a bubbler at the other end. I kept the original sponge and bio media in the back chamber to keep the good bacteria. Iíve had too many issues with controlling the flow this tank provides. I do plug in the main filter from time to time for a few hours. However, Iíve had no issues with just using the sponge filter.

Hereís a pic. Donít blast me for the ďjungleĒ look. Lol. The vals have taken over recently. I have to put some thought into this tank. Sigh...
