Default gate valve or ball valve on sun sun?

could use a little help. i want to use a valve preferably the gate variety. i want to use it on a sun sun 302 canister. i've had luck finding ball valves for 5/8" tubing but no gate valves in that size. my plan is to run lily/ poppy pipes to a 5.5 gallon. how much can you turn down the outflow without damaging the canister? i eventually want this to run 3x 5.5 gallons. is this feasible? i will have it on the single 5.5 for a bit. it will house 1 female crowntail betta. thanks
