    I do 50% on it anyway, that shouldn't be a problem :) I can only do Internal Filters, though, because if the way the hood is shaped. I don't think I even could use a Power filter. Thanks for your help :)

    I think I have 120 right now but it's a baffled hang on back aquatech 5-15. I think as long as your doing 50% weekly it should be okay but IF you wanna go higher then go for it.

    Lol, I was reviewing that website you reccomended me, and the power filters they reccomended do about 100 GPH, so I was curious. At this point it's either a Dwarf Puffer or a Betta, so let's see what happens :) thanks!

    I think that'll be good. He'll probably need 50% water changes weekly. That was the recommendation I got due to general messyness on their part. Mine spits bloodworm skins out sometimes and leaves em. Bleh!

    Hey VG, sorry to both you, but, as you know, I'm going to reuse my 5 gallon, and on the Dwarf Puffers, what do you think a good GPH rate is for a 5 gallon? I was considering a Fluval U1, which is 65 GPH. Is this suitable?

    I have Huey in a 5 Gallon Hawkeye from Walmart. The filter that came with it is a normal hang on the back filter by Aquatech (I think it's a 5-15). I had a baffle on it for Wraith and I just left it on but they really don't need a baffle. It's pretty quiet. And it can be used for cycling.
