I set up an Evolve 4 in my office on Tuesday. It has only a half-grown (probable male) Betta. The current is very strong. I have put a sponge on the outtake, but then there does not seem to be enough flow to get the water flowing into the filter. I noticed waste piling up in a corner.
I keep taking the sponge off and then putting it back on. I even tore a hole in the end to let some flow out.
This will be his first three-day weekend, so I have to make a choice. .
Note: I will do another PWC
before I leave today
Yes, I had a weak moment at Petco and bought a baby Betta. He is very strong and very aggressive. I tried him with a ghost shrimp and he attacked it repeatedly--full predator mode. I put a small pond snail in and he ate it!
Planted, heated, sand substrate. Extra bag of media in the sump. Extra filter in the filter box.
Set up on 2-10-13
