This aquarium is very popular among Betta fish owners. I bought a heater and a thermometer so I can make sure the water is warm enough for my Betta fish. (The ideal temperature is 75-81 degrees Fahrenheit).

The only problem I use with this kit is the filter. It blows my male Betta in every direction. It frustrated my Betta fish and I was worried that he would be hurt by the intake. If you have Betta fish (especially male Betta, usually not very strong swimmers), you definitely need a pre-filtered sponge. The pre-filter sponge is installed on the outside of the water inlet.
I have prefilter sponges on my HOB filter and water pump, which have reduced my water flow. I tried putting a DIY sponge filter at the outlet but it eventually falls off show I just removed it completely.

Since I added floating plants my male betta likes to hangout in the roots, or he seems to hang out near the bottom with the corys.
