Flow rate for Discus tank

So I've had nothing but problems with two canister filters that I have. I was getting nowhere with asking the company which parts need replaced. I was pretty angry after getting poor customer service for about a year. Well, I'm happy now! They just sent me two brand new filters. I don't want to say the brand because I'm hoping to avoid having this thread closed.

One canister is 360 gph and one is 220 gph. My 75 gallon Discus tank had the barely working 360 on it and I put the new 360 on it yesterday. My five Discus seem to be staying very still. I'm wondering if 360 gph is too much for Discus on a 75 gallon? Should I put the new 220 on the Discus tank? I have a 55 gallon African Cichlid tank that has a 264 gph and could use more flow so I could put the 360 on that tank.
