Looks pretty good. Just wondering, was this your mighty flower power thinking, or did you just steal design from internet?

If I can figure out how to get video working on my camera, I'll make a video.

It produces a ton of bubbles, and it skimmed off alot of the sediment from the sand, but not enough to make it effective (for particles of sand lol)
