I've got an EHEIM 1262 (900gph) on my 90 gallon discus tank; I've also got a powerhead in there to stir up the detritus on the bottom of the tank.
Granted that the eheim is throttled down a little bit, but I would bet that my pump is pushing more than yours. What you can try doing is make a spray bar for the end of the return on your canister filter (maybe even make the spray bar connected by both of the canisters you have), that way the water is being dissipated more than just a normal return.
