well, i suppose this would work. you will want that return pump to be on the tank bottom and not raised up like that.
i think the maintenance will be a bit more than the HOB filters though. i believe you'll have to remove and rinse those ceramic rings off every so often or detritus will accumulate. maybe if you could make a box like those wet/drys have so that all of the water is forced through the filter floss before it hits the rings, it might function better.
