I think you're going to be in the neighborhood of too much flow. Even with sponge pre-filters, spray bars or lily pipes. But - you should, as you mentioned, just give it a shot. You may be able to get things just right and turn flow down low enough without harming the filter.

I've used the 2232 on a 5.5gal and found it could work if I turned things way down. The filter you've got may be too much.

If it doesn't work, maybe you could sell it/trade it?
