    Sorry, fff, no video capabilities. (44k dialup)

    Depends on the fish. Depends on the filter. Depends on the keeper.

    Hey Hallyx, is there any way you could show me a video of your sponge filter(s) for your bettas so I can see what the flow looks like?

    Or can a sponge filter never really be too strong for a betta?

    I'd go with the mini. The one I have has a shorter lower base. The sponge almost sits on the bottom. This gives a longer lift tube for more flow. You can adjust the flow with a $3 valve in the airline.

    Type in http:/www. to get this link to work.

    Don't forget to get an airstone for deluxe operation.

    Okay, so, for my 5 gallon, one betta, gravel, no plamts tank, should I get the hydro mini or hydro 2 sponge filter?

    Perfect! That cut-to-size stuff just seems so convenient/cheap so I'm glad I can use it. I don't know when I'm going to make the switch, but when I do I will let you know. Thanks for your help.

    Yeah, that's good stuff. As much as will fit in your filter. A 3x3 in square of 1/2in thick floss is plenty of area for one Betta. You might have to clean it more often than sponge. Keep an eye on it and let me know, please.

    Would filter floss/poly fiber-type material be sufficient for housing a colony of BB?
