I just got my 5.5 Top Fin Tank. It came with a Top Fin power filter, It is pretty slow, just too fast for my betta. What can I do to reduce the filter rate, I don't really want to go out and spend $20 more dollars for my $35 tank

You could baffle the flow. :good: This is easy to do with some filter sponge or something.

i can attest to this, it works very well.

also works as a bit of a muffler for the filter as well.

I cut plastic water bottles the size of the filter and use parcel tape to attach it. Works like a charm.
