What causes the tidal wave? Is it like a toppling overflow? When it gets top heavy it tips over?

Yes, it creates a 2" high wave that travels the length of the growing mat.
I had a thread about it a while back. Will try to find it.

Will shoot a new video.

Can you provide a link. Or just post a new video. Haha. In maybe 2 months hopefully... I will be building my basement sump. And an algae scrubber will be on the menu! Heck I think my basement will be more viewed by friends and family than my display!
