Marineland penguin 350 too strong?

My betta started hanging underneath the filter, where the filter hangs on the tank and i don't know if the current the filter creates is too strong.
And I was wondering since I upgraded from a 20 gallon to a 40+ gallon tank and i move all the gravel, the water, the decorations and i put the filter media and the bio pad from my old filters inside a marineland penguin 350, how long should i leave them there so the bio wheels from the marineland filter absorb the BB?

I don't know what are you talking about! Me and the voices inside my head will prove you
wrong!

Fish can easily swim away from too much current in 40 gallon. Unless filter is so strong that fish is being swept about the tank,,I would not worry bout the fish.
Would leave seed material in filter for a couple weeks were it me.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
