Just an FYI...You could probably get an Octopus Skimmer for the cost of materials to build one....

A skimmer mixes air into the water, and raises up a foam, then skims off that foam. Unlike most other kinds of filters, this actually removes organics from the water instead of trapping them or converting them to a diffrent form. Only works in saltwater though.
