Tetra whisper 201i too strong, suggestions?

Hey all! After loving my divided 10g setup, I decided to get a 20g long and I got a Tetra Whisper 20i for it, but even adjusted and baffled it is WAY too strong! Especially since I have sand... it's creating this giant hole in the substrate. Would it be ok to put the 10i version in a 20g? My 10g has an Aquaclear, but my hubby hates the dripping noise from having it throttled to the lowest flow. Anyone have any better suggestions for me?

I have live plants and driftwood, not sure how those would effect the filter's flow not bothering the fish, and the plants nearest to the filter keep getting uprooted because of the substrate moving so much and the flow of water.

Disrupt current and give him something else to focus on.

Yea, except I'm not even sure my dividers will hold up to the current. It's REALLY strong.

You could make your own divider if you haven't. Sponge Filters are the best for Bettas, I am sure of that. I recommend this sponge filter as I have it for my 3.5 gallon and it's pretty strong so it should be fine in a 10 gallon. They're also best for collecting BB. ;)

well it's a 20 gallon, but I see there are many sponge filters like that online for bigger tanks!

Choclatebetta, what do you have against dividers?
