    I recently moved my betta from a 29g to a 10g tank so I could use the 29 for more than just one fish lol.

    In the 10g I have a Tetra 2-10 internal filter. The filter seems to push him around when he goes to that side. What would be the best filter for a 10g tank that won't push my betta around?

    I use that since a buffer sponge can be added to further reduce flow

    You can modify it a bit to reduce water flow

    I used an Aquaclear 20 when I had a betta in a 10 gallon. You can adjust the outflow rate. The extra just gets filtered again, making it even cleaner. Advertisements claim they can handle 7 times the water volume of comparable HOB filters. I stretched pantyhose over the intake at first. Got tired of having to rinse it off every day. He still did fine after taking the pantyhose off.

    I am using an aqueon quiet flow 20 on my 10 gallon. No filter cartridges though. I stuffed the thing full of filter floss and bio-max media.
