I have a HOB filter (TopFin silentstream power 10) and I have a betta who likes to sit by it and he has gotten his tail stuck to it once already. What do y'all recommend I do to prevent this issue?

If you want to spend some money, a prefilter spong will work.

If you want it to be natural, put a ton of moss over it.

What prefilter sponge would you recommend for the filter

What kind of betta do you have? If he's getting stuck to the filter, he may be sick. Healthy fish, even bettas, shouldn't get stuck to the intake of a filter like that.

He is a crowntail and he gets off its just that one or two of his tail strings (i dont know what they are called) will get sucked in and he pulls off I just want to prevent it.

Yes, 0/0/12 I just got him today so he may be a little stressed with the new tank, I also have 4 penguin tetras in there but they will most likely be gone tomorrow.
