My Fluval V has the perfect amount of flow for my betta with a 1/4" hole in the outflow line and the pump turned all the way down to low.

If you cut a bunch of holes, maybe try turning the filter back up or sealing some of the holes?

There are plenty of putties and epoxies you could use--or even just a dab of silicone, which I understand tank owners should probably keep on hand anyway, haha. (I ought to get some next time I'm out...)

"Aquariums are like science, art, and hypno-therapy, all rolled into one," I insisted.

My aquascape style tends towards 'tall in the back, short in the front, lots and lots of green and stuff. And maybe a rock somewhere...'

You could also slide a piece of wide air hose over the tube, or replace it entirely if you had to with a new air hose. Just check the diameter.
