    Hello I've posted a photo of harrys (my betta) fins to get some advice on if he's nipping his own fins or if he has any thing else I posted it in my post called urgent help! Can you please give some advice ? :)

    I leave the carbon in but don't replace it when I figure it's depleted. I also leave in the ceramic rings. The filter floss is more like a sponge. I add a second one when I take out the carbon.
    I have the spray bar in the water but at the waterline and point it toward the tank wall. I leave it on wide open and the Betta don't have a problem swimming around it.
    Keep asking. I don't mind.

    So you've got me into maybe getting an internal filter from but id like to ask you some questions if thats okay.
    Do you use the carbon that comes with it? because I've heard that the carbon will take out any plant fertilizer in the tank
    Do you use filter floss and/or ceramic rings?
    Does the spray bar go above the water or in the water?
    thanks for all your help!

    Saw this on the "...fin-biting.." thread. Cracked me right up! LoL
