    Woohoo....my carlson surge device thingy actually works! Now all that's left is to fine tune it to minimize bubbles and sounds. Oh, and it's only ~1g hehe. Just had to congratulate myself somewhere....the gf got tired of hearing about this thing for the past 2 months.

    It's not eggcrate, it's a kind of soft plastic grid. Each hole is ~1/8" wide. Going to try an algae turf scrubber type thing. Basically replacing my fuge to a certain extent.

    Yeah. Told you in the first post this was just me finishing the main part of it. I still need to figure out the lighting for it, make a lid, adjust the siphon-break, figure out a better way to seal the water input so noise doesn't come out etc etc. But the main thing is that the basic part of it works.
