It looks wonderful.
For some reason my brain started thinking Ricky and "Marty", lol.

I would like to hear some more about your setup.

I am wondering if it is possible to filter the fish tank water to the point where it is crystal clear with no algae in it or waste food at the bottom.  Basically make the fish tank as clear as a regular indoor aquarium. vs a murky pond.

My daughter broke out in the most beautiful smile and started a hard giggle when she saw it. Her and my son want to make another one... but with the Lego man dancing. lol

I am thinking robot break-dancing!

There definitely are ways to do that. Mine is pretty darn clear most of the time. No algae as the tank is mostly covered, black, and has goldfish in it... who love to pick at algae if it starts to grow. Now that it is inside... it really does not have any algae issue.

I made several other YouTube vids of my system way back when I first built it if you want to check it out.

There is an ongoing thread about it as well.
