Betta has no problems with current and often plays in the current.
I believe people underestimate these little fishes and their needs. A healthy Betta can simply swim to an area of the tank where current is less.
Now if they are being plastered to the glass from the return flow ,well,, that's another story.
The return is below the water level, however; the tank is divided into three sections to house several Bettas. The section the return is in is the only one with to much flow.
Take a look at the link above.... the return is in the right side of the tank.
