Default filter output

The water flow on my filter is strong, it causes my plants planted near by to be knocked around. Any suggestions on how to slow it down. My filter looks like the penguin 350 except instead of the bio wheel it has bio pads, it does take the penguin size c cartridges.

what type of filter is it?

If it's a canister you can always turn the spraybar to a better spot, like turning it so that the water flows directly into the glass of the tank.

The best way to cope with the high flow of the HOB filter is to keep the water level as high as possible.
