Hi there, What is the difference of the side panels in the top of the bottom glass and in the side of the bottom glass? Thank you,
will the water not simply push the glass apart at the seams ?
Where do you get the glass and what thickness is it?
I like the old baby joey acrylic video better ❤️
Does anyone know a good site to buy glass from?
I'm considering building a 20 gallon cube for my axolotl when he grows up since the ones you buy online are costly.
i know its 3 years old but, hit the subtitles option man, deaf people like fish too. Some of your videos are missing them and I really like your content, but i need the subs.
Hey Joey, any views about the 3rd way of building it? i.e. front and back glass on edges of bottom and side glasses over the bottom and between front and back glasses.
Assuming 8mm thick glass with 24"x18"x15"
Sides: 18"x (15"-8mm)
Voice low :/ with volume up
Hey! I just built my first aquarium using your vids. It's a 25 gallon square. One mistake was not using tape to get an even seam.. 2h of scraping and it looks good. I just filled it up after it sat for 48h to dry and i'm a bit worried because if i push or pull on the walls, i can see the silicone actually move a little. Is that normal? It has no leaks so far and looks good.
How thick does glass have to be for a aquarium that is 80cm x 100cm?
Are you using special glass or glass for like windows
I find it hard to believe that the only thing holding the glass is silicon.
You are the best!
Does a tank under 50g need bracing??
I realize this is an older video but hopefully you will reply. I want to build 4 5 g tanks that are 12"L x 10"W x 10"H the GARF calculator says 1/4" glass. Is that the size I should use or can I use something thinner? Thanks for the great tutorial. Liked and subbed.
How much would it cost
This is bad idea 💡 I have more good ideas
I'm determined to make cheaper tanks for animal lovers like me!
what is the best type of silicon that's safe for tanks?
I have 2 60 gallon tanks. I’d like to build using (4) 48L X 25H , 1/4” thick glass forming the walls. Is 1/4” glass too thin for that?
BUT ABOUT THICKNESS OF THE GLASS
Silicone will hold glass together even under all the weight of the water? It just seems like the glass would rip away from the silicone….
what was the background song at the last?
I love this!! I don't know why, my tanks are SOOOO expensive where I live!!! and I want to take care of my fish by supplying them with a large amount of room. But struggle to afford it!
Joey I would like very much to see you build a glass aquarium with direct injection method.
Where do you get the glass?
Question here I have looked at almost 300 + hrs of video and info but cant seem to find the correct answer…
Whats the best way to brace my DIM GLASS TANK? 40 Gallon…
Measurements will be 38" L X 13" W, the H is 21"
So that said do I need to Brace my tank or will it hold I will barely do the silicone part of the aquarium and sure I will d a video for you to see my AQUARIUM and cheap $$$
Still the best guide in 2017. Amazing guides for everything actually. Your book has saved me so much money already.
how many fish can I place in 14 gallon aquarium?
Where to get glass? Large peices?
Y DID U LOOK AT THIS COMMENT
does this work for bigger tanks
Please help me can i make an aqurium using hot glue gun
How would you go about cutting a hole in the glass to add an overflow for a sump? I'm assuming a diamond hold saw
What kind of glass should you use
You make it look so easy! Ugh!
hey where do I buy glass?
im rebuilding an aquarium my neighbor gave me, its a 55 gallon but the plastic bracing frame broke and when its filled with water it slightly bows. so rather than press my luck and flood my living room im going to repair the tank.
the bottom bracing frame is still solid, could i simply leave the bottom frame sealed and use it as a guide to square my rebuild?
this tank was built in 1996 and i have no idea if a previous owner resealed it since, but there's definitely some deteriorated silicone so this needs to happen.
thanks for any input!
did u place all 4glass above the base glass or sealed at the lower edge of base glass?
Can I make a 75+ Gallon Aquarium with this?
Considered whether silicone fish if it is a little bit inside the aquarium ?
Hi, I have an Aqueon long 55 gallon tank. I want to remove a side panel and flip the tank on its side and attach the panel where the top once was. The point would be to get more surface area for my alligator snapper. I was wondering if it would be okay since I would on top of the bottom and would have to attach on the sides?
how can i get a 90 angle?
hey I'm trying to build a 75 gallon reef tank with a overflow what are all the materials and tools I will need for the build
