I would love to hear your thoughts.

I OFTEN considered this..

then i went to a wet/dry filter. the benefits are pretty easily noticeable.

also at night i have a needlewheel pump that spits tons of bubbles into my sumo area that get sucked into the main pump. these micro bubbles increase the water/air surface area A LOT.. i no longer have debris buildup anywhere in my tank. it all gets efficiently eaten by bacteria at this point
