Is 300 GPH too much in a 30 Gal tank?

Im setting up a wet/dry filter system for my 30 Gallon aquarium. Ive got a pump that at 4 feet will pump 300GPH, My concern is that it will create too big a current for my fish. Is there any way to check without just setting everything up and seeing what happens?
