DIY sponge filter for planted tank?
I have a 2.5g tank with a betta in it and was thinking of making a sponge filter for it, since those are very small filters and wont mess up the look. However, I have plants that I would like to thrive. If I reduce the size of the "bubble tube" near the surface of the water to constrict the bubbles, will this reduce the amount of surface disturbance enough? Or could I reduce the bubbles and therefore reduce the surface disruption in another way?

You can buy valves to adjust the flow from the air pump, or you could add a gang valve.

Ahh, thank you Tanker. I will try that and see how that works.

or you could just skip the filter since its planted.

if you need a gang valve, i got a few extras. would save you time spending 10 dollars for 4 of them. ill sell one to you for 2.00 with free shipping. will also add a splitter valve.
