I managed to get my 6001 power head hooked up to my canister filter and it is working just fine. My power head is rated at up to 200 GPH and my Fluval is rated at 110 GPH, but I did read somewhere that Fluval is rated without media. I use the power head to supply water to the inlet of the filter so now the filter does not have to suck just blow. My circulation seems to be much better. I also have an in line reactor plumbed in the outlet side of the filter.
What do you all think about this set up?

Thanks Wasser, It's not a giant boost in flow but it is noticeable and about right for my tank.

Boink, I think it really depends on the type of pump. Weather its a pressure bypass pump or positive flow pump.

But thanks for your input.
