Filter too strong?

I've just got my fish a new tank which came with a filter, I'm not sure if it's going to be too strong for him though.. What do you think?

Anyone? Or is the video not really showing much... I don't want him to get pushed into the wall!

I moved my two guys out of 2 g fish bowls to 2 eclipse 3 tanks. I thought the current was too strong at first but they adjusted & r fine now. I know there r people on here who have rigged their filters so the flow is weaker. Some have suggested even putting plants around the flow to kind of slow it down. I will have to see if I can fine those threads.

Mine got used to it as well. Unless you see him really struggling or getting blown away and tumbling around, I wouldn't worry about it.

I have a low flow filter....Bonzo seems not to be bothered, he likes all parts of the tank, but I do turn the filter off at night along with the lights.
