Nice design. I love that you are not relying on the screws for downward verticle support. That support system would hold up a small car as each upright can support 1200lbs. All you need is a friend with lotsa tools. LOL

Are those floating floors? Whats underneath? How long do you think it will last vs a glass or acyrlic. Should add epoxy or a glue to all the joints. And or brackets just for longevity Is that only. Ac ductless or heat to?

So I was thinking and you only need a permit to build if it's over 100 square feet so why dont you build multiple 99 square foot buildings and connect them by a "patio"

Just like aquariums,it's measured by the outside. Youd have to build it smaller than 10'x10' on the outside...so basically 9' x 9' inside. That's awful small

Quick question hopefully someone can help out setting. Up a new 55 gal tank looking at three canister filters 1 marine land 220 , marine land 360 and a penn plax cascade 700 I have peacock cichlids and blood parrot cichlids hope someone can shed some options thank you

I agree with going to Reddit for more info but, I would say that gallons per hour is the most important consideration for a pump. The more water you can filter, the better. So whichever one does the most gallons.

Hey Joey! Idk if you will get a chance to see this but I just had a quick question. At night should I be using the blue light setting on my aquarium lights or is it ok to just turn them off completely? I’d love to hear your take on it!

Why are all your vertical columns 1/2” too short? It looks like all the aquarium weight is being held by the horizontal wood which is only held in place by screws. There’s no compression force on any of the vertical 2x4s
Kenric Kenric
Kenric Kenric Ամիս առաջ
@ItsA Propaganda Thanks, I looked closer and I now see a second 2x4 behind the middle column so that makes sense to me now. I didn't see it before and I though he had one 2x4 there to hold up the middle brace.

Can't imagine you wouldn't want a sump over a canister, considering how much poop a big school of oscars is going to produce. Seems regular maintenance of a sump would be much easier, especially if you use a floss or a big foam pad to pre-filter that you swap or wash out frequently, I imagine canisters are going to get clogged up pretty quick, and require a lot more time and effort to clean out regularly. I think you have been revolutionary to the hobby, Joey, for promoting sump use for freshwater aquariums, and I am now convinced they are the best way to go, especially for large tanks and large fish. I would only consider going back to canisters for tanks with smaller species and lower bio-loads. I hope you return to sumps for most of your tanks and keep the movement alive.

Hello from the UK, just watched your video regarding Frank's passing, firstly sorry for your loss, as you said in the video Frank would normally have been culled due to his shape etc you should be proud of yourself for giving him a loving environment in which he lived a much longer life. Keep up the good work and try not to dwell too much on the past other than to remember the good times.

Ive wanted an Oscar since Joey first introduced them to me, but damn the contrast with those pink fish...imagining them in a dark substrate wooden tank with the oscars and the pink fish...my new dream. What are the pink fish though? I obviously missed the episode where he made that current Oscar aquarium
