    Hi there! My filter that I've been using for years (currently for my split 10 gal tank) just broke, so I had to get a new one. I ordered it from Amazon because I wanted one with an adjustable flow, but after 2 days of waiting, my tank went and just fogged up completely, got all kinds of nasty...
  2. Planted Betta Tanks
    Hello and happy September, My betta Sidd’s tank is finally cycled, ive been using a filter cartridge. But I recently I decided that a sponge filter would be a better choice for his 5 gallon as it takes up less space and because I am sick of spending money on cartridges all the time...

    give me your best affordable and !QUIET! betta filter. i used to have just hang on the back fluval filters but those can be a little noisy and would probably be a little too powerful for my bettas. looking for something i won’t hear and won’t bother my bettas! i have a 10 gallon divided tank if...

    I'm really intrigued. Minimalist, filtered, stylish... But I haven't seen any reviews on them or this new bettaflo filter. Anyone have it or know about it?

    So right now I only have shrimp (want to add a betta at some point) in my 5 gal tank set up with a hang on filter. I want to switch the filter to a canister filter but I want to know if the shrimp will be alright with the filter change and the new filter media. Just want to keep them safe and...

    Help!! Posting again😂 so I just changed my boy’s water and for some odd reason, even though the filter is on the lowest setting, it’s pushing harder than usual and it’s shoving his floating log and his pellets around like crazy. It’s never done that before! It’s just a Top Fin hang on back...

    I currently have a 2.5 gallon TopFin Bettaflo Relax tank for my betta. The tank came with a submersible pump (pictures are attached) and it has started humming/vibrating. I'm looking to replace it with something similar but quieter. Any recommendations?? Info on the pump: TopFin SP-55...

    I'm not even sure if anyone will be able to answer this in time but I haven't been able to find a good answer anywhere else so I thought I'd give this a shot. I've got a new tank coming in the mail tomorrow and then a filter coming the next day. By tomorrow I'll have everything I need to set up...

    I have a 10 gallon aquarium with a male betta and one nerite snail. I am in need of a good filter, but the really good filter that was recommended to me several years ago on this forum is not working for my current betta. I think it is a little too strong, because when I added it to the tank...

    I absolutely adore bettas! I have had three total in the last several years, but have ultimately lost them all to diseases. Well, my girlfriend just got me a new betta a few weeks ago since we were moving in together, and I love him to death! However, he seems a little dumb compared to my last...

    I thought the larger aquarium on order was going to arrive tomorrow so I was less concerned at his previous failed attempts to jump BUT, I found out it's not arriving for over a week and tonight I see I have a big jumper. At first it seemed like the filter running was giving him a slipstream...

    My lil Marco has been happily living in his cycled 2.5 gallon tank for about 3 weeks now without any signs of stress. As it turns out, my parents have actually grown super attached to him now despite their earlier reluctance and have even suggested a bigger tank for him (I'm all for it). After...

    Thanks to a friend, I now have a ten gallon tank!! It was really gross, but I cleaned it out the best I could. Anyway, I'm super exited, because it's always been my dream to have a divided 10 gallon. It didn't come with a heater or filter or lights, but since it's not going to be a planted...

    I have 1 betta fish in a 10 gallon heated/filter tank. Temperature is set at 80 degrees. I last cleaned the tank 2 weeks ago using tap water. The tap water is generally clean in my city, although the city's infrastructure is old, so I treat the water with Aqueon Water Conditioner just in...

    Mini emergency, question about my current betta tank Okay, so I have been doing a bit more research lately and I am starting to question my knowledge of betta fish. I recently bought a ten gallon tank and a divider to go down the middle so I could put my two male half moon bettas in one tank...

    Hi! I'm at a dead end with filters. I have a 2.5 gallon tank and I feel like I have scoured the ends of Amazon to find a decent one. I can't even tell you how many reviews I've read but they all seem to say they'll be too strong for my fish! I finally settled on the Elite Underwater Filter but...

    I've recently purchased the newest version of the Fluval Chi, and I am having some trouble with the filter. Nothing is broken, and the tank is great, but the flow is way too strong for my betta. I haven't found anything online about how to fix the problem (at least for the model I have), so I...

    I'm currently using a Fluval Spec 2.6 Gallon and the filter is a little strong, sometimes my Betta gets stuck to it. He's strong enough to swim out of it. I'm just wondering if being stuck to it causes them stress or if its actually okay and he can relax against the filter like that.

    Probably a silly question, but I was wondering if a filter is necessary for a 2 gallon tank? I have a Whisper filter in there now and it doesn't seem to catch much of anything. But I am worrying about my betta not being oxygenated enough, unless a bubble stone is enough. Thanks in advance, (I...

    This may seem like a silly question, but I bought two of my tank kits before I knew about cycling. :roll: I have found that the tanks I have sponge filters in cycled much better than the ones with the carbon cartridge filters. Makes sense. So I am wondering - has anyone had experience with...
