Default Inline heater restrict flow?

Hey everyone, I have a gretch canister filter that has 1" hoses on it, and I need a heater. I was thinking of getting an inline heater, but the one I'm looking at has 5/8" connections. Will I see a considerable drop in flow if I splice in the heater? It's on a 100 gallon stock tank, filter is rated for 200 gallons. The heater I'm looking at is a hydor 300w inline.

I'd heat the water at the stock tank. I'm not exactly sure how the inline works, but if flow stops for any reason...wouldn't the inline heater burn out? Does it have a thermostat? I'd use a 300W submersible on the stock tank, and cover it (stock tank) to help it stay warm, and keep humidity down.
