Current for a Jewel

Presently I have a single Jewel Chichlid (5" or so) and a DBN Plec (4" or so) in a 20L with a Penguin Biowheel 170.

In the future the Jewel will become king of 125 gallon tank stocked mainly with cats/loaches. I would like to seed the canister for the 125gal, Rena Filstar XP3, in the 20L. I know the plec won't care, but I am a bit concerned about the Jewel. Everything I have ever read says that it is a river fish, but that doesn't necessarily means that it enjoys current.

Mine do fine in minimal current (just what comes off the AC 500 on the end of their 75G tank).

I just realized that in my canister test run that the outlet hose was kinked a bit, and that the filter would produce a ridiculous amount of current in such a small tank. I also realized that the media baskets were large enough to accomidate the whole filter cartridge from the HOB, making seeding the new canister a bit easier.
