You can extend the spray bar, all you need is a piece of pvc
thats the same size, drill holes in it every 1/2" or so, and cut a short piece of your return tubing to slide between the current spray bar and the new one.
I keep my spray bars right at the surface. I dont like them above because it causes too much evap in my house, but right at the top keeps the water moving
