[Chlamydomonas] how to limit growth

A turbidostat will be the right culturing method for you, this would be 
a technical way to limit the cell density. A change of the culture media 
or rather the nutrient supply to limit cell density would always effect 
the motility and the health status of the cells.  The cells could loose 
their motility and would reduce their metabolic turnover.
