Will this RDSB idea work?

Hey everyone,

I'm fighting a bit of a nitrate problem. In addition to cutting back feeding and doing some large water changes, I'm thinking of installing a remote deep sandbed. I have a frag tank attached to my system, but I dont want to have the DSB in the actual tank. I have half a 5g bucket of sand, and I am thinking of cutting the top half of the bucket off and just sitting the bottom half of the bucket with the sand in the frag tank. I figure this is removable, accessible, etc. Can anyone see a problem with this? I figure it's essentially a RDSB in a bucket like many others have, except the bucket is sitting submerged in my frag tank.
One day I'll be so rich I'll have a closed loop and Tunzes to mix my new saltwater!
