What type of filter is it?
For mine, I stuff aquarium sponge in the outtake (where the water flows out) and then add some tall silk plants in front if it to break up any remaining current.

option 2 - switch to sponge filters. You can run 2 off one airpump and then you can put one in each section

option 3 - there is also a way to baffle the current by using a soda bottle and there are or there was, a sticky somelace on this forum on how to do that.

What kind of filter do you use? I use a quietflow 20 for my 10 gallon and my betta swims just fine in the current. I've heard of some people putting stretchy stockings over the intake area of the filter in the aquarium so the flow isn't as strong.
