Sounds awesome! I so badly wish I was in the states for this.. I was just reading about Dr Carlson's surge device before I saw this post!

Might be worth making this sticky!

I saw a video of his surge device on one of the outdoor tanks at the aquarium in HI. Its amazingly simple design that you could build for your home setup. If of course your tank was setup to handle a suddent surge of 20+ gals.
