Mine's not as fancy as those above, but depending on your filter, you may be able to aim to outflow over your plants, which is what's working for me.

This is just a bit of wood hooked over the open output at the back of a fluval flex. Left to right is Anubias Coffeefolia, Java moss (?), Buce sp., Java Fern, Mondo Grass, and a torn up moss ball at the back. All are growing well under the lid - I think the humidity really helps.

@Thelongsnail Just so I can understand, you put a piece of wood over the nozzle? How did you get it to stay? Does the current hit any plants directly?

@Ryan Mosby I had a bit of wood that naturally had a slight hook, so I managed to wedge it in and pad it with the torn up moss ball. It's stable but more balanced in position rather than permanently attached.

The current goes over the moss ball bits directly, and goes over the roots of the buce and java fern. Everything else just has its roots in the water and the moss just sort of appeared by itself - I suppose there were spores either in the water or on the wood.

Oh and as said by someone previously - it does get a fair amount of hair algae around the water line, but this is easily removed and my water lettuce roots cover it anyway.
