After looking at the picture of the unit, the only way I can see to modify it to fit would be to cut a section out of it until it's small enough, then use either waterproof plastic cement or 2 part epoxy (powerpoxy brand) to reassemble the end to the main piece.
You might want to consider an easier way... send it back and tell them it won't fit into your tank, and then instead of their unit, go to the LFS and find a limewood air block/diffuser and use that instead. The wood has smaller pores than something like an air stone, so the bubbles come out small enough to avoid wasting CO2 while still getting your desired effect. The limewood blocks are often sold for use in protein skimmers, and shouldn't cost more than what you paid for that unit in the picture.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
