How to build a plywood aquarium. Sounds fishy right? Building a wooden tank? Have no fear… I will show you how to build a plywood aquarium, while keeping it affordable, simple, LOOK GREAT and what i like to call: Bullet proof.
This is part 1 of a 6 part build. In this video I show you how I built the tank itself. The shell of the tank came first.

I just finished watching your 6 part series. What did you do about the HVAC air return trapped behind the stand?
Do you use #10 screws?
How does the thin plywood stuck with glue withstand such pressure from the water
The reason i never heard about a plywood aquarium fail is that i never heard of a plywood aquarium period. So that statement aint fair in any sense of the word based on the relatively few examples out there compared to glass or acrylic…
Its kinda like saying how often have you heard about a cardboard spaceshuttle fail? Both are unheard of to me and im sure not the only one.
I am interested in this however but that statement alone proves nothing.
Bro how thick is the glass? I need To make like that thanks
sir I'm needing to build an aquarium for turtles , store bough ones don't last cause they dig the caulking ( seal ) out , and was wondering if you think this would work for them or should i go fiberglass
Is there a reason you places side panels on top of bottom panel instead of bottom inside of side panels
Self taping screws 😂🙄
What is the thickness of the plywood sheets used?
bullet proof, I can promise that is not true
I know this is an old video but would this same process work for a 600g build? 8' long 4' wide 30" tall. Would I be able to get away with framing it in plywood like you did (the bracing on the outside is what im talking about)
I heard very good opinions about the Woodglut plans.
can i use this as a tank for a bearded dragon??
You can use Woodglut and plans. The best plans and very detailed instructions. You can learn a lot from them and do it yourself.
Woodglut has a very large project base.
Try to do it with Woodglut plans 🙂
This time I will do it manually with the help of Woodglut designs.
Find all the information you need on the Woodglut website.
Self (tap)ping screws.
How would you make a headboard tank 9 foot length 1 foot depth and 2 feet in height? Out of plywood
Nice…..I'm thinking of turning over my 30x30x30 dinning table made out of wood….and well that will be my frame….remove the glass out of my 55gallon…fallow your steps…and boom….hehehe 123
looks like you need a new sharp blade on your table saw!
Would this design work for an 8' long 4' high 33" deep aquarium
5 years later. Is this tank still going strong? Is this the same tank you covered with Styrofoam that looked like Bricks? You should be Syndicated. I would watch every episode faithfully. You are truly the official King of DIY.
