Filter baffle help

I have two tanks with the Tetra 3 gallon filters

http://www.tetra-fish.com/sites/tetr...l.aspx?id=4216

Anyone have any ideas on the best way to baffle them - I'm worried they're annoying my bettas.

Thanks!

Maybe a flow valve on the air line?

There's actually a flow valve where the line connects to the filter. I have the same one. Not sure if I'm speaking out of nowhere (so someone could give me a yea or nay on this), but would putting a sponge in the tubing going up help at all?

I'm trying the aquarium sponge trick I saw on other threads.. so far one of them is confused by it, and the other loves it. :)

I have a valve on mine, and a small piece of aquarium/filter sponge tucked into the up flow...

Ok, can you help me out - where exactly on the filter are you referring to with that statement. I'm confused... (feeling very newbie right now)

Could be wrong, but I believe they are talking about the yellow highlighted area.

Just get an aquarium gang valve and reduce air flow.
