Filter makes to much agitation for Betta

Ok so I have a small-world submersible Penn Plax filter for my Betta Bowl and the bubble agitate the surface to much for Kokino he doesn't like the surface doing that.. and he tries to make bubble nests but can't. I looked on the baffle thread but couldn't find a solution to if you have my kind of filter. Does anyone have any advice/suggestions.

I'm not familiar with what that filter looks like, but I've found that these valves really help with filter flow, and bubble stone flow. For Buddy's tank I have a small piece of sponge in the inflow part, and valve for the total flow.

What about covering the flow with a sponge? That could work if the baffle guide won't work for you.

I have a valve to control flow.. Will the filter still work if it is on a low air flow?


here is a link to the filter on a website

Buddy is in a 5g tank, and the filter on very low with the valve, and sponge, and his tank is clean.

On mine, since I don't have a flow control and baffles didn't look good on it, I cut three holes roughly 1/4" on the hose from the pump to the outlet. I started with one at a time until I found the right amount of holes. I have a 4 gal tank.
