Need help for filter

Hi, I recently got myself a new betta for my 40 gal. it has a Aqueon 06079 QuietFlow 55/75 Power Filter. I realized that it's current is a bit too powerful for him. I need to know how to change the setting so that its lower and less powerful. (if theres no setting then is it possible to reduce its speed somehow externally?)

Thanks!

also, would it be okay if i turned off my filter for most of the day unless I'm out of the house? (btw my betta seems to be running away from the filter which touches the sand of my tank so i turned it off)

Don't have that filter, but if it's adjustable, there should be a little knob to control the flow either at the top or somewhere inside the filter. If not, then the flow is fixed. You could always baffle the outflow. Ideally, you don't ever want to unplug the filter unless you're doing a water change, or if there's a power outage.
