My own Bio wheel

I made my own bio wheel. It's just a pool filter and I have a pump pumping water up and on top of it making it spin. It's huge compared to any other bio wheel I have ever seen for sale. I have made some adjustments with it between the time the pic was taken to now.
What do you think?

Here it is currently, I have a pump, pumping water up to the emperor filter, then the emperor flowing on to the wheel.

That is an awesome idea! Is that a sump setup?

I have it set up on my already establshed tank. So, it should seed quickly, I would think. Yes that is my sump. I have nothing hanging on or in my tank, everything is in the sump under the tank hidden by the stand.
Thanks for the comments.

Very cool! That is a monster biowheel. Does the Marineland filter still have its biowheels, too? If so, that's a massive amount of biological filtration!

Yes, it still has the wheel in it too. Plus 10 gallons of bio balls in my sump.

Kudos to you. That's pretty damn creative!

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
