Unhappy Whisper Filter

Hello!

I got a filter for my 2.5 gallon, the smallest Whisper out there to get. It still shoves my betta down to the gravel... What should I do to stop this? I am sure many people have asked this, but honestly, I have a lot of homework and am only allowing myself to check this thread from now on.

Use aquarium sponge to baffle the outflow. It can either be put into the area where the filter goes or put on the front of the outflow and rubber banded to the filter with the sponge hanging down into the water

Try pre-filter sponges such as these: http://www.amazon.com/Hagen-A1387-Fl.../dp/B002LL32RY

Or baffle the filter with a piece of plastic bottle: http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=30139

Thanks for the info! I like the water bottle idea, I'm kinda broke at the moment. Awesome. :)
