I've tried redirecting in such a way as I would expect it to stay on the shade side. I'm going to better diffuse the output and probably just lower the water. The plants don't seem to notice the blockage and I do fight to keep the light period down, maybe I'll just leave it on longer and not worry about it, see what happens.
Actually, If I slice an air tube, or something a bit thicker, 1/2", I can push it on to the bottom of the support as it is the bottom of a "T", and lower the water a bit as long as it is still deep enough into the water.
I think that the weed is actually swimming when I am not looking and ducking under the support bar... perhaps I'll set up a hidden camera to catch the buggers in the act.
It is called DUCK weed after all...
