    Setting up a 20Long for a betta fish and assassin snails. Tried an AquaClear 20 but we just had two very short power outages caused by thunderstorms (so short that even the generator did not kick in) - both times the filter ran dry and needed to be primed. Fortunately I was home; otherwise it would have kept running and burned out.

    Now looking for recommendations for a filter system that will not require repriming and that has an adjustable flow or low enough gph to not cause too much current for the betta. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks Cichlidude. The Tidal 35 looks like an excellent filter - I am ordering it now.
