In todays video, I gave myself a $5 budget to come up with an underwater camera.
Obviously for $5 im going to have to build some sort of housing for an existing camera. The smallest camera i had was my cell phone, so i concentrated on building something for $5 or less to temporarily water proof it.
Since now a days a cell phone is such a common item, and i was making this for underwater fish shots, i thought you guys might find it useful.
With that said… this didnt work out as planned…

I am getting a few Platty and Molly fish, and I'd love to take underwater shots of them. Would a GoPro camera work? Or would it scare them too much?
awesome shots of your "sump discus"
so gopro is a waste of money???
hey joey do you have any salt water aquarium? if you don't,do you plan on having one?
hey joey are you selling some of your discuss?
Great idea joey..
hi Joey i used to have a vinyl tube connecting 2 aquarium and light brown stuff started to clog the tube. is there a minimum diameter of the tube to prevent it from clogging?
How about a diy ro di system
Sweet. Different preventive!
Joey, how comfortable are you putting your hand in the Aro tank?
I know almost nothing about them… but would it ever snap at your finger or anything?
brilliant reat book bye the way im off to order a waterproof phone case thanx again
Joey, That arowanna is absolutely gorgeous! Love the rays too. A ray tank is my dream mega tank.
I've built a DIY underwater housing using acrylic for a point and shoot/cell phone. It worked well and was fairly inexpensive.
For DSLRs you can use a water jug and cut a hole in the lid/bottom and place some acrylic over it. The jug will be very buoyant so you'd likely have to weigh it down. This really is too bulky for aquarium use but could work well in pond, lake, or ocean shots. Most people wouldn't want to use a DSLR in an aquarium anyway 😀
looks good! keep the videos coming. Cant wait till' next sunday!
I didn't realize how big your Aro was until this video. The shot where you have the camera in the tank at the far end and the aro is down closest to the camera makes him look huge. What are it's measurements?
Amazing Discus! Did you breed them?
Do you have another way? There is no waterproof cases for the iPhone 5C ..very interested but i have no choice..
Did your first Arowana die?
great vid as always
Idea for a new vid , a "drum water filter"
any ideas as they are very good filter but very expensive
Very good idea. My iPhone takes much better pictures & videos than my underwater Nikon. But I never thought of using the phone underwater. Thanks Joey!
I did this and used my computer to control my phone
Very nice to see your fish and tanks from another angle! 😀 Keep the awsome work up!
Wow that was great!! Sometimes the best DIYs is not to DIY. Thanks Joey for sharing this do it yourself moment!! 🙂
And your aro looks amazing btw 😀
Good idea joey.. I had tried in a similar way by keeping my phone inside an airtight glass jar while recording 😛 did work..
Your arowana is looking great! Glad his tail healed nicely 🙂
For $5… it was a fun project to do. Too bad i suck at taking underwater video! haha
