Personally I wouldn't run a canister on a drilled tank. Most canisters are not designed to run under pressure and will leak if they are trying to hold back the volume of the entire tank. I know that some people have done this type of thing with success, but its not something that I personally would risk.

If it's the pre-drilled tank made by fluval it's meant to run with a canister, and they don't have weirs the just comes straight up into the tank

Woops pressed send instead of attach!

Also, the tank ran for ten years with a cannister, so I would say its probably fine, but I'd like to look into a sump as well.
I apologize for the terrible photos, the tank is in my garage at the moment with not much light or access to take close ups.
