I got some new fish and I would like to slow the current until they increase in size alittle. I'm slowing the current by using the screen part from an old fish tank. I was wondering if this is an okay method since the screen is a type of metal? Im open to any methods you think would be better.

You can do the cut bottle method! google it and you will find youtube videos about it! Basically it spreads the flow better on the surface which means you can keep flow high but it is less aggressive in the water. Or you can add an outflow sponge. Just go to a pet store and buy generic filter floss or sponge and cut it to fit in the outlet!
