My caution with this is that the water goes all the to the top and if you have any blockage of the return you're going to have a wet floor.
Is this the breeder box you mean, mach?

I used a Hagen Elite filter on mine and it worked great. The uptube on the Marina fit in the output of the Elite nice and snug, no muss or fuss.

Truth about the blockage!! But that setup worked like a champ for my cory fry.
