I've run one for years low tech.
With the internal and a koralia nano 900.
Upgraded the impeller to the 1000 lph and removed the koralia when I just grew java fern,anubias & crypts.
Biggest problem may be in the T5 lighting, but I'm sure you can get around that.
This subject comes up a lot
Should do the trick nicely.
I run a similar set up with the Ex1200.
As much as I like Jbl filters the 901e didn't give me enough flow.
And tbh when it comes to maintenance time,I prefer the tap set up on a Tetratec,to the block on a Jbl.
Mines 6 years old,and never leaked.
