Today, i take you on a short update of my 370 gallon plywood aquarium.
Watch me build this aquarium.
HOW TO BUILD A PLYWOOD AQUARIUM:
The king of DIY
Only problem I have is the amount of water changed! Recommended is 30% not like 80%
You have to change water that much when you have fish? Why? Isn't that what the filtration is for?
Awesome video series on the homebuilt aquarium system Joey, watched all parts as I am thinking of building one for a discus tank. Keep up the great videos.
any update in the plywood? did it bend?
Hey bro, where is your older brother Joey? Hahahaha Crazy how things have change
How thick is the glass on this tank?.
Wow I must say , changing 80 percent of the water every week does seem excessive , Ive known people to go 10 years without any change
of water at all.
Would putting a ball valve on the overflow pipes let you control the rate at which water leaves the tank allowing control of the level? I'm asking because I'm not a fish guy but it makes sense to me.
Is it possible to have news about this tank ?
So how well would this hold up to saltwater use ?
I really like this idea of a tank like this. How thick should the front Glass be for a tank built for 240 to 320 Gallons of water. I am a good carpenter and your video is very clear on instruction. I need to buy the glass front sheet of clear glass. Just need to know the suggested thickness and type. Should it be tempered?
Do you have a heater in side the tank aswell?
How has this tank held up? I'm interested in building a ~300 gallon plywood tank but not if they don't last.
Is this tank still running.?
I’m working on building a 4 tank 120gallon a piece tank. How much pond shield do you think I’ll need to seal all four tanks?
You knew that fish gets big quick you put him into alot of different tanks
I think the fish got to big and that fish you switch to like 5 different tanks
Doing more than 30% can harm arowanas that’s what they say well but when it’s in a bigger tank no issues
Awesome contents keep up the good work
Joey choose your words, I'm English I nearly spat my tea lol the fish is already swimming in an Encased environment lol Don't worry Sir you're much much better at this these days lol
how have you found this tank has held up over time…
i wonder if you could do an update on this today? or is this tank gone?
Sell me your tank.. haha please
how do you test your water joey?
Could you do a planted aquarium in the plywood tank?
need your brilliant help. I'm thinking of building a plywood tank 12ft long by 30inch high and 4ft back to front. will two 6ft by 2ft glass be ok for the front? there both 10mm thick. thank you for any help
just put a ball valve in your overflow pipes and calibrate as desired.
Hello, why do you change 80% of the water per week. 30 % per week is ok. I did it for 5 years now for my 1200 liters aquarium with my arowana too.
a 80% water change every week? I have under gravel filters and a sump filter. my water tests clean all the time. I may change my water every 6 months with two Oscars 12 inches long. it seems you are over changing your water to me. I filter my tank 5 times a hour. don't get me started on my 1400 gallon koi pond. I filter it 8 times a hour using home made filters.
I've used PVC fittings in the past to adjust the height of the strainers.
What brand of power monitor do you use?
After the weekly 80 percent water changes, how does he regulate the temperature of well water that goes back into the tank?
Awesome videos and thanks for the great advice,
have you ever tried to run the system on solar? that could be an interesting challenge,
Can you make that a salt water tank?
how much did it end up weighing? how much did it all end up costing? awesome build!
What did you use to clean the glass after you painted the tank black, if u did get any excess paint on the glass? And I will continue to watch more videos, maybe i will find out for myself.. but what did u use to cut the hole in the viewing panel?
With such care given to making the inside black and lighting only the fish, I find the top waterline distracting. Just sayin'….
how much did building this cost
How much are the monthly costs for Lights, filter, etc?
i dont understand how the plumbing and heating work?
while watching all 6 videos on the build and this update, I've been thinking building a tank like this. However in stead of the trickle filter I would go with an ebb and flow N.F.T. aquaponics systems using multiple rows, built with pvc pipe in the stand. Any thoughts suggestions?
Great tank and when you go, you can be buried in it.
I love your tank and Asian arowana. Because I have a silver arowana about 36" for now, what kind of the food do you fee your arowana?
How old is your aro?
if you make the scale of the tank and fish smaller that arowana would look like a plakat betta in a 5 gallon tank lol
why dont you put some plants in there for him…
He looks so lonely 🙁
what a total beast
Those lighting are perfect for the arowana! Are those lights the dual led diy of yours? And if they are, what combination of colour are you using?
Can you post the wood specs on this tank? Like a type and length of each?
