Cichilids and Currents

Just wanted to get some different opinions on whether or not African(Lake Malawi) Cichlids like current (bubble wands). I was looking at lining the back glass of my 55g tank with some Bubble Wands ...... good idea or no?? Everything I have read/seen so far says that "most" Lake Malawi's enjoy current in their tank.

Let the opinionating begin.
