Greenwater and Daphnia

Got some friends with a pond in Honolulu.  It is very green.  They placed
a screen cage into the pond and added some daphnia to the cage. The system
works well.  The only problem is finding a screen that doesn't get clogged
to quickly but will retain the daphnia napuli.  I figure it could easily
get worked into a slow filter system that constantly pumps new green water
into the cage.  It should work with D. magna.  hmmmm.  Might be a really
good idea for me.  I suppose I could suspend it with some float and use
the parts of a tetra sponge filter to provide a slow constant airlift for
the greenwater and a means to exclude the goldfish.
