Power head issues

I have a single power head in a 40g tank. The head is pushing 269gph I believe. I just got 2 nemos and they're fighting the power head. I'm supposed to have an even stronger head but they're struggling with this one what should I do

Even if they are it still pushes around sand and waste to places I can't reach. It's in the back corner of my tank facing my rock to kind of slow the current and it still pushes things around
