  Is CO2 loss an issue?  If not, you may want to try the Penguin
Biowheel Mini (I think that's what it's called - it's the smallest
model they have).  I don't use the filter pads that they suggest.  I
usually toss in a foam block or a nylon full of old aquarium gravel. 
If you want, you can cut off the lip from the return too, so that it
doesn't creat too much surface agitation.  I guess, if you do that, and
with all the talk about wet/dry's not being too bad for driving off
CO2, this might be a good option.
