Followup question: Iím considering switching to a stainless steel inflow/outflow if and when my glassware breaks, but they only seem to be available in the straight pipe/jet pipe configuration, rather than lily, poppy, spin, etc. I know that a straight pipe tends to produce a stronger current, which may be an issue, as Iím looking to get a giant (plakat) betta in the tank at some point. Would the current from a jet pipe be too strong for it, or would it not be too much of an issue in a 3 foot tank? Cheers in advance for any advice!

In my opinion I think too strong.. I run a sponge filter in my betta tanks.
