Question Waterfall filter

I have a whisper PF10 filter for my tank and it creates a lot of flow, so does anybody have any ideas on how to remove or lessen the flow?

I am not familiar with that particular filter but you could place objects such as ornaments or plants under the outlet to baffle the flow.

I believe I have the same exact filter. I placed a large fake plant underneath & it greatly reduces the flow. You can visually see the difference of the flow compared to if the filter were placed in a position with nothing underneath it.
