    Been watching your videos but never made a youtube account until now just to subscribe. Your videos inspired me to try to make my own acrylic tank and I managed to make my first 45 gallon tank. Not too big but I was happy when it was finished and there was no leaks at all. Thanks a lot for posting these videos and keep up the good work.

    what exactly kind of resin are you using to coat the stuff that will be underwater? I build styrofoam backgrounds for Vivariums and looking for a good sealer to protect the acrylic paint and grout i use from the wet humid environment that goes on in my vivariums for poison dart frogs. I need something that is non toxic to plants and frogs. So far the only things i've found that i feel safe using are Shields All and Silicone

  •  5 years ago

    Hi I was wondering if you could help me out. I watched your videos and want to try and make a 55 gallon myself. Start smaller then your 150. I am terrible with math and just stuggling with the dimensions. A typical 55 gallon is 48" x 13" x 21". So first question is how thick should i make the acrylic? And two how much would I take off for the side peices to fit? If you could help that would be great. Thanks for your time!

    Love all the aquarium DIY videos very useful for me! Especially the 'How to build an Aquarium stand'! :D On that tutorial you said you are then going to show us how to finish it by wrapping it up. You know doors, trim, stain and/or paint. I build the stand but can put the tank on it yet because this tank and stand is going in my living room. Thanks again for taking the time to make these tutorial videos for us to learn and use.

  • SuperSlovenianyoutub

    Well I have a question. Why did you put so much work and effort to buil a 50 Gal sump for diskus aquarium, if you will later run the entire aquarium wit the Eheim pro canisterr filter? So the if you remove the sump, you will need to somehow repair the drilled holes at the top of the aqurium- and just how will you do that?

  •  6 years ago

    Great Video as always..ok question, I have a Penn Plax Cascade 1200 Canister Filter and was curious how the Eheim compared to it, the Cascade also has 4 large media baskets and a large flow rate, I was originally going to buy an Eheim but found a spectacular deal on the Cascade that I simply couldnt pass. Now Im getting ready to build a 200 gal Acrylic and was curious on your opinion between the canisters.. btw I will be running 2 or perhaps 3 cans on 200 gal tank but again curious on which you would think is best.. Thanks Again!!

  • Sids Aquariums & Adventures

    Oh ok. Alright I will call them on Monday to get another estimate. I guess I can ask for the free cutting afterwards. Even if the cutting is not free, I should be able to cut the acrylic myself. But would be nice to have it professionally cut to reduce saw marks. Thanks Joey for the quick response. Highly appreciated.

  • Sids Aquariums & Adventures

    I basically requested for 6 sides. Front and Back(72x23), Bottom and Top(72x24), 2 sides(23x23). I think I got that right.

  • Sids Aquariums & Adventures

    Hey Joey I had a question. Somewhere in your comments section I thought I saw that the total price for your acrylic tank build cost was $500. Im assuming thats with the acrylic. I recently had called EM plastic to get an estimate for acrylic to build a tank thats 72in x 24in x 23height. The estimate just for this half inch cell cast acrylic was $1450 from EM plastic. Just wanted to know if im missing something here or thats just the price it is. Please let me know buddy. Im very keen to start my build.

    Hi joey,
    i made the DIY overflow but i am not getting the water to flow, after i prime the pipe the water starts flowing and once i stop sucking on the check valve the water just stops coming of the outlet, any idea why this might happen, tried all i could but couldnt figure it out,
    P.S- do you drill the hole in the end cap after priming or before priming??
    P.S.S- does the position of the check valve matter? i have it on the elbow that is on the outer side of the tank.

I went to your calculator but it says under construction. i guess i just have to wait...but anyway, like i said previously, im kind of new in the aquarium, i guess, i need you to walk me thru this. your asking me about , how much flow im looking for my 125g (aro tank) upgrade. well, i would leave it up to you coz thats sounds so technical for me being new in this scene. one more thing im considering, if the 10g sump wouldn't be enough is the eheim ultra g160, but it'll be great to save some $!

Im kind of new in the aquarium hobby, currently I have 40g breeder tank with a eheim 2213 filter canister and a whisper over head filter, these are all hand me down stuff from a friend including the tank. I have 1 silver aro and a blue aro in a separate tank. The silver is in a quarantine 10g tank and im thinking of upgrading my tank to a 125g and make my 10g as a sump pump, would that be enough for a sump pump? I just wanna start with a simple set up like your diy over flow. please let me know, thank you and more power!

    Hi Joey. Im a big fan of your amazing builds. I wanted to build an acrylic tank about the size of that same tank you built in the DIY video. I live in Brampton, Ontario and theres an EM Plastic branch close to my house. I was just wondering if that offer of free cutting is still valid if I were to mention your name. Please let me know, also would be kind enough to tell me the exact dimensions of this tank you built. It would be a great help brother. thx.

    I am planning to build a square aquarium for a salt-water FOWLR tank, 40 X 40 X 24 inches, I plan to put the overflow in the center of the tank. My question is, does the acrylic I use for the center overflow have to be the same thickness (1/2 inch) as the rest of the tank? Secondly, how do you determine the size the overflow needs to be? Your videos have been very helpful and I recommend them to my fellow aquarists!

Maybe once your feet are wet and itching with the idea of upgrading we can do 2 tanks at once. ;) Quick question for ya though do acrylic tanks bow out?

  • Gustavo R. Guimarães

    First, congratulations for the work/videos, I was doing some random research and end up watching your videos for almost 4h. I'm new on the hobby,just got a 55gal tank stabled and running for 2 months by now, I'm using a ehein 2224, around 40 community fishes and some ghost shrimp. The questions:
    - What do you think about UV filtration?
    - Is it too early to ad on my filtration system? If no what size would you recommend?
    Thanks and CONGRATULATIONS again

    Dude, you should throw some DIY kits together and sell them online, you already have the demonstration videos to go with them. You'll make a killing because picking out and buying everything separately is a pain in the ass for new DIYers.

    I want to build an acrylic tank thats 9 feet wide and 3 1/2 feet tall and 2 ft 10 inches deep would the acrylic cement welding be strong enough for this or would extra bracing be needed?

    TheRossiboy 6 years ago

    I've noticed that you do a lot of acrylic work...I was planning on making a tall custom 2mm thick acrylic tank for my stick insects. Would it be alright if I cut the panels by hand with a coping saw or electric saw and then sanded the edges down? I would thjen use silicone to bond the pieces...the tank has no need to hold water so no crazy forces are gonna be'd be great if you could give me your opinion thanks mate :)

    Hi Joey, very big fan, haha. :) I'm looking into building my own tank as well, around 250-300g. I was thinking for dimensions 72"x27"x30" (LxWxH). Will I have any issues with these dimensions? I'm also unsure of how to do the braces, what do you recommend?

  • Paul V. Rotondi
    Paul V. Rotondi 6 years ago

    I was trying to get ideas for building my first tank, when I came across your series on building your own 150 Gallon freshwater tank. The dimensions you're using for the tank in the series is a bit too large of a footprint for the space I was looking to fill with my next tank, but I was wondering if I turn the tank on it's side, as it were, and make it 48L x 20W x 36H, if I should up the thickness to 3/4" from the 1/2" (18mm, up from 12mm) that you use in the video, because of the increased pressure of the water on the sides of the tank from the elevated water column....
    Let me know what you think...and thanks for the very educational videos.

    Hey joey do you think that its ok to put fish in pitch black? I cover my tank during the daytime so they arent so stressed with so much light so i can turn on the light at night. what do you think of this?

    do any of your videos explain what size pump i should look for as far as gph?
