MY MOAT!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😭😭😭😭
Just curious, does your wife mind all the aquariums?
First time i've seen someone not know what to do whilst knowing what to do 😂😂 love the aquarium👍👍
Hey man I'm trying to have an aquarium that is a swimming pool that is 86 in what would you advise for a heater I'm trying to keep koi and goldfish because I know that the fish water can't be really really cold so it has to have some sort of heater I plan to treat the water with a lot of water dechlorinated please contact me as soon as possible
You have a great energy. Very good for show biz 😉
For the MP60s I'd make a thin acrylic box, put the motors inside and the heads on the outside with a total of 5 sides being available to you for adjustment of flow. That's just head placement on the box, of course you could move the whole box wherever you wanted if you suspend it from the ceiling just like a lighting fixture. Cleaning of the pumps would be easier and you'd be more flexible
you know that setup weighs in at around 8 tons
couldnt just run a hose huh?
id do every corner and have a central sump
I would say paint the acrylic corner panels white, you'll regret it if you don't. This has been such a big project and you've been so patient, don't rush it now
paint the corner panels white so you dont see the wires.. it ill disappear more
i think you'll just be making a risk having the mp60s setup that way what if the water pressure makes the corner pieces come off and cause a electrical problem with your beloved fish? why not get jebao ones and save risk.
paint the back of those panels white to match and have a small clear area on one side for filming underwater
this is purely aesthetic but were you going to paint the cords for the wave maker white? that way it would give the floating look a more clean look.
it's pretty complex, i guess my road of ornamental fish breeding still a long way to go
"Mr. Attitude." Love it.
you have so many pumps, why not put 9 pumps in the tank.Three on each of the viable sides. Then use the controller to turn them on and off to keep a very movement of the water in teh tank. This will help remove dead spots etc. That's a lot of water to move, and a HUGE tank. You can't have too many pumps.
LUCK LUCK LUCK LUCK LUCK LUCK LUCK LUCK LUCK LUCK LUCK LUCK!
drill the cerilick then sand the cerilick and the concrete then put your glue were you need it then drill the concret when the cerilick is on the con concrete.
Joey, do you have a background in civil engineering or construction? Or did you self-learn everything as you go? Just curious haha
Told you Joey, dry boxes. Probably don't have to be so thick, but you did well.
i was thinking you should maybe build a complete triangle-shaped box rather than just trying to attach it directly to the concrete…
personally, if i was you, I'd be using a pump that's meant to be fully submerged on both sides, a panta rhei emc63 would look real nice on that tank haha, you'd only need like 2 i bet.
the other solution i've seen is to just cut holes in the acrylic panels – basically router out holes to just make spots on the panel just under 1" depth and the wave pumps drop into the cutouts. its ugly though if you ever wanna remove em. truthfully i think it's probably the wrong wavepump for the tank's requirements but your solution will probably work.
Are those wavemakers really not submersible? Pretty much all aquarium equipment I know is.
If you goo with the silicone in corners. Make sure they have a drain, or splash and condensation will build up and wet your pump motors over time for sure.
Or at least drop a water alarm down the channel.
