I would recommend not to plan on injecting CO2 into a canister filter.  I did 
it with an Eheim 2228 and ended up locking up the filter.  Use a reactor, Tom 
Barr style.


This shows how your mileage may vary. I hav injected into Eheims for almost 
three years and have never, ever had a lock up. I think that with too much 
gas going into the filter this could happen. An Eheim rep told me at a trade 
show that Eheims are engineered to evacuate bubbles from the pump head.
