    You could use a plankton reactor, very similar in design with the tube in the centre.

    Pretty cool idea, i have chaeto in my sump with a 4000lph powerhead pointing at it from the bottom. This gets me the flow through it, which is pretty good. It is just the lighting aspect of the reactor that would bother me, as my kitchen already looks like a disco at night with the current algae bulb.
