Okay, once again I feel like I have NO
IDEA what I'm doing....
Friday, I decided to look into buying a more powerful filter for the 10 gallon. The one that came with the tank (a Whisper HOB
) is just not circulating the water with the betta divider in it. The side without the filter is really scummy looking on the top (I think it's betta spit) and when I moved this tank on Saturday, the gravel was grungy...like NOTHING is being filtered from that side of the tank.
Anyway, I went to Big Al's website to look at sponge filters -- holy crap! I have NO
CLUE what to look for. I saw that some of them were only about $8, which is a bargain price and would work for me, but I don't know if I'm buying the right thing.
I have a limited budget for this filter, so please, please, please give me some advice on what to buy. I'm thinking less than $20 if possible (okay, so I'm poor...I just worry about my poor Bill the Betta).
Bill has also had little appetite in the past couple days and I wonder if it's cuz his side of the tank is gunky. Water parameters are fine...I tested them Friday. Going to test again today after the big move yesterday.
