What I did with my penguin is staple a little piece of filter floss (quilt 
batting) to the inside lip of the outlet.  It doesn't reduce the flow rate, 
but it slow the speed of the water going back to the tank.  I never had AC 
mini, from the look of it, staple won't work.  Since penguin is make of 
black somewhat flexible plastic.  You can silicone or try hot glue the 
filter floss.  Cut a piece of floss about 2-3 inches wide and the length of 
your filter outlet.  Glue it on somehow.  Run the filter, then cut the 
floss back to adjust for flow/surface agitation.
