Default Particle Injection and Tracking in Fluent 6.3

SlimShady is on a distinguished road

Attached below is the geometry of Flat plate photobioreactor (PBR) used for microalgae cultivation that I'm working on. It involves bubbling of air through the sparger pipe situated at the bottom which makes the liquid present inside swirl around the dividing plate.

I've prepared the geometry and meshed it. I have also simulated the flow inside the PBR. Now I'm interested in approximating the microalgae particles inside the PBR by using particle injection technique to later track the particle trajectories. I read how Lagrangian formulation has been used in the past to investigate this but I don't know how to implement this in Fluent 6.3.

Please help me out with the above by stating a step-wise approach.

Thank you
