So my tank has a build in filtration. And basically this is it. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06X958X7Z/?tag=ff0d01-20



I’m using it for fresh water instead of salt water which they said you can. My only problem is that the pump is too strong for my Betta fish and I can control the pressure or you know slow down the current. This is the pump it comes with https://intankaquatics.com/coralife-size-29-size-led-32-biocube-replacement-pump/
It shows all the specs if you want to see. Does anyone know any pump that would be weaker and a current my Betta could handle? I found a different version of it which I think it would be less strong than the one I have which is right here. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00EKNP2A6/?tag=ff0d01-20 It’s for a different version of it but I think it should work if I get it. But if there is any other pump that would be better please send me some.

If you had a sponge filter, the flow would be a lot less. May I please see a picture of said pump? :)

Doesn’t matter anymore I’m getting a new tank with a new filter. So that’s great at least my Betta will feel better

I use whisper 1-4 gallon. My Betts sleeps behind it. I'm using it in a 5g. Works real well.

I’ve used them all and I swear there is nothing better than a sponge filter in a betta tank.
