OKay, I am about 80% finished with my build, on a my version of the SM100.
Then I started thinking about rotating the screen, on a wheel setup, sort of like a Biowheel filter. Well Lo and behold, I searched the internet and found this:

Much to my surprise.
So, why can't we just take a BIOWHEEL, modify it to use a washable screen, use the same calculated surface area of the screen, and then put the lights on this thing and then rotate it through the water. It seems to me this would be a lot more efficient, rotating the wheel, as opposed to trying to pump 35gph per inch of screen. It would take a lot less energy to rotate this thing in the water too.
It will take up a lot less room too, and be much simpler to build. The lighting will be much easier, then all these darn T5HO's.
