z38...i did the same conversion from cichlids to salt.....i have a fluval 404 and eheim 2217 for a 65g. Your gonna get decent flow from your return on the canister and powerhead but as pimp said when you add the live rock there will be more opportunity for dead spots, which means more flow may be necessary. Also, i was thinking the same thing and i stacked my fluval with bio noodles, but you have to remember this is not a sump or a bio wheel where large amounts of open air and 02 are being exposed for the good bacteria. This is one of the few downfalls of our canisters, but not a major one. I believe this is the reason pimp is suggesting making chem and sponges a major media in the canister, Good luck with the conversion dude..welcome!
