READ THIS BEFORE ASKING A QUESTION:
I used Zavlar by liquid rubber for my actual build.
I have recently heard some people having some issues with aquaguard. Saying it is too watery. So don’t use it.
I originally mentioned AquaGuard in the build so U.S viewers would be able to use liquid rubber as well.
While AquaGuard is still a liquid rubber, and safe to use. It is not practical for a plywood tank like i had thought it would be.
For U.S viewers, look for pond coat! Made by liquid rubber, and is the exact same thing i used, just a different name(licensed under Liquid Rubber) http://www.permadri.com/pond-coat.html

This product is good for both fresh and saltwater aquariums.

I did it with Woodglut.
Will rust-oleum work?
I am so far behind. lol I am watching this 8 years later.
Nice. Would you say the most expensive piece of a plywood tank build is the viewing panel whether it be glass or acrylic?
from 2018 your the best youtube improved your quality so much
I wonder can you use plasty dip
Didn't you mean to say 4MM thickness membrane?
r u still running this tank if so how is it holding up
Amazing video, thanks!
How long did this aquarium end up lasting?
I am building the same thing copying you
You should go to woodprix if you'd like to make it yourself guys.
how well did the liquid rubber aquarium hold up
For the people who use fiberglass cloth in the corners, do they also use fiberglass resin or do you just apply the liquid rubber directly to it?
now would the liquid rubber be something like flex seal?
umm…Good video…i'm in for trying it this summer…Just few questions…the kind of plywood-it's thickness, the glass panel thickness…& if it's possible to make more than one side with glass. Can i have three glass panel view? front & two sides?
Hello Joey I have been looking for plywood tanks made with drylok and I have found a few but not a whole lot of info on how to make them. can you help us out with this. the liquid rubbers and such are getting harder to find and when you do you always have to order them. Drylok can be readily available at any time.thank you Doug
Hey Joey, where can I pick up Zavlar, been calling around to home depot and others, but no one knows what I'm talking about. Thanks, bud
look my video
ace looking aquarium
Plasti dip would be less expensive, and you can choose a variety of colors.
How much of a cost savings is it to build an aquarium from Wood,Glass,Acrylic vs. Buying a good used tank?
LOVE THE INSPECTOR AND HIS APPROVAL!!!
how long did you let it sit before you put fish in as the toxins from rubber and silicon.
Love the video
Since this was just a test build and as you said in another comment you sold it years ago did you ever build another one?
me and my friend are building a roughly 40 gallon tank, we are going to order 1 gallon of liquid rubber. I believe it should be enough to cover my the tank and make it completely waterproof, you said in the video that you had 6 coats. does 1 heavy coat work if thats all I would have to make sure its waterproof? I plan on testing it outside for leaks before it goes into my room because it is my first tank build. Also we were going to try to find some acrylic sheets for the front, im wanting some about half an inch think or a little under, also we are trying to do this cheap because we are only freshmen in highschool. Anyways, hopefully you read this and have some tips for me! Thank you.
Love your videos, they are all very helpful. I'm curious how the liquid rubber might hold up in a planted tank using dirt as a substrate, and would I use the same thickness plywood that should be used for an acrylic tank the same size?
I was wondering what type of plywood you used to do this build
Did you use screws only to secure the side panels to the front, back & bottom panels?
Could u use acrylic instead of the glass
Could I use birch plywood
