    the issue is that there is a possibility the inlet into the canister can suck in air from the down-flow of water causing bubbles thus over time causing an airlock in the canister and it stop working, its plausible but that would be my fear

    Yes and no.
    It was part of a series of nano tanks.
    They also copycat the design with a few minor changes and made their own. If they still have it, I'm not sure.

    what I was thinking ,if I make a 50mm hole on the bottom glass and add a 50mm bulk head and make a acrylic cylinder with holes over it then im sure it will act the same ?

    what I like is the plumbing been directly underneath the tank
