Oh, the way it falls into the tank like that is pretty nice. It shouldn't create too much flow for him at all. You should definitely consider getting him some more silk plants and a cave type decoration. Silk plants are better than plastic because plastic can be sharp and rip their delicate fins. More plants will help buffer the flow of water and give him places to hide and rest in. Caves are nice because sometimes fish need a place where they can be in the dark when they're feeling stressed out or scared. If money is an issue, you can use a ceramic coffee mug (as long as it hasn't recently been cleaned with soap), this makes a great cave. Terra cotta plant pots are also good for this, but make sure you plug the drainage hole in the bottom of the pot before you put it in--many bettas have tried to swim through this hole and suffered terrible injuries by getting trapped. My personal favorite are the caves made from half of a hollowed out shell of a coconut. They're cheap and look very cute.

Other than some more decorations, your new setup looks great! Hopefully he'll adjust to his new surroundings very soon. Make sure you research the nitrogen cycle.

I can't see those pictures from work, so I'll just have to imagine what it looks like and see it later when I get home. :) You could still probably use the basic bottle baffle technique--there is a stickied article in the Betta Habitats secton on how to do it. You may have to use a little more tape and elbow grease to get it to work well with your spray bar, but you should be able to get it to work if you mess with it.

You could also wrap some filter media around the spray bar and tie it on with some fishing line. Be careful about what materials you use, though, sponges meant for cleaning and doing dishes often have chemicals on them that make them unsuitable for aquarium use. Algae scrubber pads and filter inserts will work, though.
