    to be honest, sitting here watching my tank cycle is really boring lol, and in this time, ive had time to think and have had many arguments with myself, and now i am wondering if the filter that came with the kit is too powerful? its an aqua tech 5-15 with a GPH of 100. i was wondering that if it would be better to go to a smaller, internal filter? any input is very much appreciated in this trying time for my patience

    I use the AquaTechs. They are great for the price. I also like AquaClears, if you want something thats a bit more versatile.

    Side note on the AquaTechs, you don't have to use the carbon inserts. I always just stuff mine with filter sponges :)

    yeah, i have not used those in a while, i always just buy either filter sponge and cut it or by a filter bag, and dont use carbon most of the time... its just it seems powerful for a betta, i guess i wont really know until i get 1 and observe
