Should i Baffle my filter?

I have the Aqueon Betta Bow 2.5 Gallon. I have had my Betta in it for three days. He isn't being pushed down or sucked in by the filter, but he does seem a bit annoyed by it. He is always hiding behind it and not swimming were i can see him. He isn't bothered by the intake so, Should i baffle the filter outflow? How do i do it? Thank you for your help!

Sorry for the Bump. I really need to know. He is getting even more annoyed by it. All he is doing is hiding and he still has the stress stripes that he has had since I got him. I just want him to be comfortable in is new home.

If it were me, I'd baffle it. You can use a bit of filter sponge if you have extra. Just rubber band it to the outflow. If you don't have that, you can cut a water bottle. We have a guide here. I modified the idea so that my betta couldn't get stuck in it. I trim the bottle so it fits flush with the outflow and then cut little squares in it so the water could flow through.
