Industrial sewage treatment.

For something like this I'd do what some Dutch wholesalers do, that is seal
off a 4-6" chamber at one end of the tank by cutting a piece of glass the same
side as the end bit but 1/2" less tall. Make a filter there from progressivly
larger stones  going downward - aquarium gravel on top, driveway gravel at the
bottom. You could drive the thing with a powerhead or with air. Bonus, you get
a skimmer too which I've come to think is as important in planted tanks as the
bloody filter is itself.
