Its only to strong if your substrate is being blown around. Filter? What filter? You don't need a filter. Or are we talking about a Skimmer here?

You'll proably run into a mini cycle, and that will be from the substrate being ruffled about. You might want to rinse the substrate out before adding it to your new tank, this will keep it to a minimal. But run it bare for at least 10 days, this will give you an idea if your going to run into a mini cycle or not.
