You're going to have a very difficult time priming it if it's above water level. Usually you let gravity fill the canister with water and push all the air out. That won't be an option with your setup.
I think it states in the manual that the filter must be placed below the tank. I could be wrong.
You are correct, the filter must be placed below the aquarium.
Works just like a siphon, so nope:(
