Too much filtration/current?

As I mentioned previously, I changed my 90 gallon from an African Cichlid tank to an Oscar tank. Right now I have 3 Oscars in there. I have a sump and a Sunsun canister on there. Could this be too much current for the Oscars? They seem to struggle through it more than my Africans did. They are about 3 inches or so.

Btw, I know per this forum that 90 isn't large enough for 3 Oscars. I will take necessary actions as they outgrow the tank.

You never have enough filtration with oscars imo lol. They are gorgeous fish but oh so messy. The bigger they get the messier. They will get used to the current as they get bigger. A little flow never hurt them anyway.
