DIY Filter Idea!

Well my planned DIY is going to been a in pond filter with a strong cheap powerhead on one end sucking water through a small to medium rubbermade with lava rock as the biomedia.

How does that sound?

I know it will work but now I just got to find the powerhead that will fit the needs I need.

Well I am looking at the Tom Aquatics Dive Power 125 and The Tom Aquatics Dive Power 200, Tomorrow I am going to call around to see if I can find those or one that about the same price and has 120 or more GPH.
