DIY old school box filter

help me out here guys I like using the old school air driven box filters for my bettas less water moving and I beleive they keep the water cleaner.

right now mine has gravel/bio cermanic wheels in it, coarse, med, fine sponge through it

I was thinking of making another one out of plexi -- could I do a layer of gravel/bio wheels, carbon, ammonia, sponges? to help remove ammonia and keep water clearer? do u think it would work?
