My Betta tank's filter is strong?

I have a 2.5 gallon tank and am planning to move him into a bigger tank, the filter that came with the tank was not a good one so I got rid of it and bought a new one. The current filter i have is the red sea nano deco art filter or something like that. It keeps the water clean and everything and works good. The only problem I have with it is, even if I put the setting on it to the lowest, the water keeps making hug ripples on the surface, and its current is strong. Whenever my betta moves to the top, he gets pushed away by the filter, but he can swim against the current fairly easily, but when he wants to stay still it does not work.
What can I do to kind of block the current while still keeping the filter?

First of all, you should NOT have thrown the old filter in the trash! You should have continued to use it along with the new filter for a few weeks in order to seed the beneficial bacteria that cycles your Betta's tank.

But now that you have, you will have to cycle your tank all over again. And this will be stressful on your Betta. Try getting some NUTRAFIN CYCLE at the fish store and follow the directions. This will help with the cycling and take some stress off your Betta. I use it every time I add a new fish, change/upgrade tank sizes, when replacing a broken filter and when fry are born (I have a Mollie tank and have babies born every week! So I use A LOT of the NUTRAFIN CYCLE and swear by it! I haven't had a fish lost since I began using it)

But, to answer your question (from my personal experience keeping a Better who is now 3 yrs old and in a 10 gal tank with 3 African Dwarf Frogs, 2 Corydoras and a baby Bumblebee pleco), I have LIVE plants (TALL SWORD with LOTS of leaves) in his tank right in front of the filter to help with the flow of water. And on the other side of his tank, he has big leafy plants (I think its WISTERIA and it grows like mad in his tank) where he likes to sleep. The frogs like to use it to go to the surface of the tank for air and to play in.

And he has caves to hide in too, which he seems to like when the current in the tank is stronger than he likes.

Betta's like STILL water the best. but in captivity having clean water for them that is still is near impossible.

Another word of advice, Betta's need WARM water.....78 at the VERY least and up to 82 degrees is best. So go get him a heater for his tank.

My Betta loves his tank so much more than he did when I first got him and had him in one of those "so called" BETTA tanks. He is much more active, eats very well, gets along with all his tankmates, and has lived longer than of the any Betta's I have kept in the past in those small tanks.

I do a 40% partial water change weekly (mainly because he has tank mates and I want to be sure that the water perimeters are perfect for him....Betta's are very sensitive to dirty water). I change the filter media once a month a few days after I have done a water change, so the beneficial bacteria isn't depleted.
