Fluval Spec pump

I just got my first Betta (a male crowntail) a few days ago and he is having trouble swiming with the filter pump on any ideas on how to slow it down.

I can help with that question! Since I experienced that with my Fluval Spec too! First off welcome to the forums~

Now with the output of the filter the little plastic piece should come off, I grabbed a small piece of cloth, wrapped the output in it and tied a rubber band to secure it, this should dramatically decrease the force of the output. So it'll become Betta friendly. :3
