Would this work as a DIY fuge?

YouTube - Fuge help

Simply turning an aqueaon 30gal power filter into a fuge. Basically my idea is..

Filter pulls in water
Water goes through initial baffle into sponge which is sitting on top of another baffle
Live sand, small small pieces of crushed rubble caked in coraline + cheato algae
Pumped back into aquarium
=???
