    I think you will be fine because it doesn't carry the current throughout the tank you will be fine. If not baffle it, you don't want the flow to really go lower.

    Cool! I might have to get one for my next 5.5 gal betta-only tank. As long as it takes care of the bioload lol. But do you think the max flow on this would bother a long finned boy?

    With a single betta I think one will be fine since they don't have much of a bioload. If you get something else it is always good to over filter a bit. Bettas let you slack on filtration if you want though.

    Biomedia is a type of media you put in your filter and the only job it has is to house beneficial bacteria. Some are plastic, but those tend to be for sumps/wet dry filters. The other ones are usually ceramic or a type of glass (It doesn't look like it so idk) They are porous so they provide a greater surface area inside the ball than the amount of room it takes up. I used the Eheim one because I had it left over from my canister filter, it is more expensive, so if you want one you could go with Seachem's matrix bio media. I just have it lose in the area behind the two sponges as well.

    Oh okay. I see your tank is you think that filter would get the job done on a non-planted 5.5? And how do bio balls work? Oh, and with the flow turned up all the way do you think it would bother a long finned betta?

    I have it on the 5.5, I would rather have two but it gets the job done. I added bioballs since there is a lot of in touched area you can add, nothing real serious, but the Eheim substrat pro worked for me. I would get another because they are only $12 on Amazon, but i may be getting a Zoo Med canister filter for the tank and upgrade to a nicer tank, but it would be a downgrade in terms of the sizing 5.5 to 4 gallons (rimless)
