Getting the filter to be calmer

How can I slow down the filter in my 29 gallon? It is a top fin filter

You could Baffle it. There is a Baffle Thread of how to make one.
All you need is a Plastic Bottle, Scissors, and some Tape.
You just have to like, Cut the Bottle big enough to cover the Outflow.
I can't really explain it to you, it's hard to explain if I'm telling you.
It's somewhere in the Sticky's. I don't know which section, though. Sorry...
EDIT: It's in the "Betta Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories" Section.

This is a pic of Lion Mom's tank I saved aways back...."picture is worth a thousand words" The sponge method has an added benefit as it allows another location for good bacteria to grow.
