Do u have any pics of your filter with the modification?? I have the whisper 10i but took it out of my 5gal cuz the current was to strong and forced my betta into using 1/3 of the tank.

I purchased the Tom's Aquarium internal filter for around 14$ and it works great! It has the option to use a spray bar instead of the spout. It even has adjustable you can crank it or bring it to a slow stream. Sushi loves it, he always swims around it. By the way, I'm using a 2.5gal tank

Here is the mod that I use for my filter. I hope it assists you with your own.

You take a disposable plastic water bottle, and cut off as much of the top, and bottom so that its remaining length matches the width of your filter. You then cut a line down the length of the remaining cone, and then fix it onto your filter. The water hits this barrier first, and then trickles out the side at a slower rate.

Fantastic, inexpensive mod. Highly recommend.
