    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.

    Thanks. My science teachers filters had sand, algae, and snails. I decided to build a small model of it. His filter even had small bugs.

    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.

    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.

    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)
