My filter seems to be creating a upstream effect i dont know if its too strong?
The fish seem to be blown to the other side of the tank im not sure they like it
When its propelling water out its at a high force, is this normal? What should I do?

Is your filter flow rate adjsutible? If so just turn it down a little and see what happens then.

What kind of filter is causing the problems? I've found that adding a little pillow stuffing to the chambers will help decrease the flow rate. Not a ton, just the amount it takes to create a difference. The stuff also makes for great filter cartridge replacement. ;-)
