Current in Mbuna Tank...?

I am planning on introducing fish into my new 55 gallon tank this weekend.

The tank is well cycled, all levels are perfect, and have been constant for almost 2 months now.

I am a bit concerned that the current in my tank might be a bit strong. I have a 528 gallon per hour uv canister filter and a built in 264 gallon per hour filter built into the lid of the tank. I've also got a wave-maker in the tank . Now, this setup makes the water crystal clear, and keeps the sandy substrate clean as well, but I don't know if it may be a bit much for Mbuna?

There seems to be conflicting information when it comes to strong current, yes or no?

Any thoughts?

Thank you for the advise. I have been playing around for the past few days and I am now running the wave-maker during the day and switching it off at night time with the lights. Either way all the fish seem happy and the tank looks great.
