I did something similar the other day based on This thread at fishforums

The only change I made was adding a sponge pre-filter on the pvc intake to help eliminate any pipe cleaning concerns - works great on a 20-gal extra high that I got off craigslist.

I like the bio-ball idea in the end of the pipe here, though, and might add that under the sponge just to keep stray "stuff" out of the tube when cleaning the sponge.
