6 gallon eclipse


I have a 6 gallon eclipse tank and I'm adding my betta to it soon. My question is, will the filter be too much for the betta? I've heard that the filters of 6 gallon eclipses are very powerful. I fill the tank to the very top, to minimize the surface tension. Will that be enough to keep the water calm enough for the betta? If not, how do I reduce the water flow? I've put filter floss over the intake tube, but it did not seem to have much effect. Thanks to anyone that answers.

I'd think it would be ennough if you plan on filling the tank all the way up to the top... It reduces surface tension. Are you just going to keep one betta in your tank?

I'm planning on adding shrimp, an oto or two, and maybe some white cloud mountain minnows. Also, how many inches of flourite and how many inches of gravel should make up the substrate of this tank. I'm thinking 1 inch flourite and 1 inch of gravel on top of it. Is that too much?

i had a betta in my 6 gal eclipse and he was happy in it. I never let the water level drop below the top black frame.
