Is this too much flow for acans?

Hi I have this frag @ the bottom of thr tank but maybe in a bit too much flow. Should I move it?

IMO that's a bit strong. Put a rock or two around it... few inches away. Maybe a little taller rock? That will still keep them near the flow, but it will be dispersed or broken up.
If they start to loose body mass or tissue, it's from rubbing on the skeleton. Then definitely move them. Takes a month to recover from damage.

At 11 and 31 seconds in the video it definitely looks like too much flow.
