Thread: Water movement?
10-14-2012, 05:04 PM #1
I just got a new Betta. He is in a 15 gallon Column tank. (Tall) it came with a filter but after reading a little bit about Bettas I am wondering if I should leave it on there. Is it true that Bettas need very little water movement? Will the HOB filter cause too much water disturbance for him?

Your betta needs a filter, It is not optional.
Whether the flow is too much for him or not is really hard to say with so few details given about the filter in question & if you cannot identify it some pics might help also. DIY solutions for flow reduction are easily found on youtube or google.
Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.
A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.
