Did something similar on a much larger scale. Used golf ball sized bioballs and a powerhead for flow in a sump. It was ok but I believe that trickle system is more effective.

Yea. .I set one of these up once... I didn't like the appearance of such a big filter inside the tank. That's why we went with an external fluidized sand filter.

I have seen people try this in their sumps mostly. This video is just an example of how it works.

Why the heck would he post a vid of something he admits didn't work?

Bill, he has countless video of him doing crazy diy projects. Its not a bad idea to post something that someone else might pick up on.

I love urajoey. He does have some cool diy ideas. I watched one video that he actually created a 300gal aquarium using plywood, liquid rubber & 1 glass panel for the front for about $100! We created our 3ft canister filter for our 85 using his model. So far it works beautifully.
