  1. First and foremost, please stop saying first and foremost.  🙂  Next to answer questions about building bigger tanks.  I would go plywood bottom for anything bigger than what he is doing in this vid.  He has a vid of building a big tank with a plywood bottom.  That being said, you can do it with any sized tanks if you try.

  2. Hi. First off, amazing work!! I have learned alot from your videos. I wanted to know what I can use to remove the silicone and simple enough its acetone hahaha. If I can make a request: I am just starting in the hobby of fish keeping ( freshwater). apart from the tank builds, can you make videos or direct me to videos on everything I need to know about fishkeeping, from the tipe of sand to filter and air compressor ext ext? Thank you!

  3. when u say to put on installation how thick r u talking about ? would it need to be thicker for a bigger tank … say two 75 gallons put together . thanks for all u do … u deff have inspired me allot

  4. By the way: if you think it would be possible to create a diamond shape out of 2 aquariums, than matbe it would be a nice idea for a new project to do here 🙂

  5. Hi Joey,

    I was just looking your film about the corner aquarium because i am walking around in my head with a simular idea.
    My question for you is, would it be possible to do the same technique and create a diamond shaped aquarium?
    So also use 2 same size aquariums and than create a diamond shape or 5 corners shaped aquarium from that?
    Hope i didn't make to many typo's because i am Dutch and my english is okay but not perfect.

    Hope that you are doing well and hope to see your answer soon.

    With kind regards Ed

  7. Hello Joey! Im a huge fan of your videos!! you are amazing
    I have a question regarding a tank I wish to build, is it possible to build a corner aquarium that is a triangle shape? (flush to sides and wall) without degrading the structural integrity of the tank? or would it have to be a pentagon shape?

  8. Hey joey I have a 6f tank with 2 3f pieces for the bottom, am in the process of taking apart completely. Was wondering if you had any suggestions for when I'm putting back together what steps should I take. Do I build the sides onto the base like you have done in this vid and then seal the 2 bottom pieces or do I join the bottom 2 pieces first. Would appreciate any suggestions you have
