Water circulation flow rate

I have a 90 gallon heavily planted tank. It includes an uv sterilizer and an aqua medic 1000 co2 reactor in line with a 2215 eheim filter. I recently added a seio p1000 propeller pump power head rated at 1000 gph to increase water circulation. However, I am now wondering if the flow rate is too much as the current seems quite strong, even though the plants haven't uprooted and the fish seem to like it (12 rummy nose tetras, 8 ruby barbs, 10 Cory's and a pearl gourami). Is the flow rate ok or should I consider purchasing a lesser rated powerhead?
