in-tank daphnia breeder

I am looking for ideas - either DIY or retail - for a self-sustaining daphnia breeder for in-tank. I would like to have the culture "spill-over" into the main tank in some way, either a cut portion at the top or a few tiny holes in the sides. I dont have room in back of my tank for a "proper" refugium and room inside the tank is limited (25g tall) to approx 8wx4hx3d

I was thinking of betta containers but what I have seen are too long and deep, and have slits on sides where all the daphnia would escape too soon and often
