I would say that it would be great. It produces a good amount of water flow. The filters are generally long-lived. I would remove the biowheels though as they will just add to the nitrates in your tank.

How are the bio wheels going to add nitrate? Other than by converting the nitrite......The pads need to be cleaned weekly and it is a great way to put carbon in the tank with the cartridges.
