    I have a GloFish brand five gallon aquarium for my betta and snail. I have a Tetra Whisper filter for it, and the flow seems too strong for him. When he swims in front of if, he gets blown forward. I’vs heard of using a sponge to fix this - how would I do so?

    You can stuff a sponge or polyfil into the filter compartment to baffle the flow.

    you c an cut and fold a sponge or felt and ties it in front of the out pouring water This will also be considered as extra bio waterial to hoelp hold the cycle.
