I need your skills!
How much would u charge me to make me a stand? For a 32g biocube tank plz let me knw
If you didn't have an AIO tank and wanted a sump what would be the best way to add a door?
Oh, another question….Have you ever used wood filler and some light sanding on the 'end grain' of MDF? It works awesome to give a nice clean edge look.
Did you mean to say "Flush Trim Bit" and NOT "straight double flute bit"?
Any thought on a end table aquarium stand. Like this ped stand, would it be nice to have a place for drinks while sitting on the couch. 😉 Planning mine out now.
is it safe to do the same with a glass tank?
I think a low tech planted shrimp would be cool, build some rocks on the drop off with Java Moss between the cacks then put root stems creeping downward on the bottom where you can do glosso as a carpet and throw in some red cherry shrimp.
This was very helpful! Thank you!
When are you going set up and show us the saltwater setup?
I am wondering about how your stand will hold when you or your aquarium starts dripping (salt) water onto the wood of the stand, especially the MDF….I hear not any mention of this. Just wondering.
I still don't get the mdf cuts. Do you cut them all a bit bigger than the stand frame?? and do all 4 mdf peieces be cut the same size 2 smaller than other 2..
it's wonderful go with the slot waters
update update lol
I feel like salt water would be a fun new experience for you and your Viewers
I was just wondering, have you done any video's modifying an existing cabinet to support a tank. Just purchased a 300litre aquarium on it's own and i'm looking to strengthen it without effecting where the sump goes.
Hi Joey can I use thinner mdf as I live in New Zealand and sheets that thick are really expensive
Go saltwater, you may never get back to fresh water again.
I think you should do a sps reef. you can get easy to keep sps such as montipora ,birds nest ,pocillopora or even some acros. you could light it with a kessil and put a small skimmer in the back… I'm getting to into this haha.
Hey would anyone mind answering wether or not this would work for 75g (48×18) footprint thanks or any suggestions of where to find a video for that size tank,
marine and reef is the best.i was into freshwater for 10 years and im 1 1/2 into my reefing and im never doing freshwater again,will you be adding a sump down below ?
I'd go with salt with some clown fish and other smaller size fishes like blue green cromis that would look awsome in a tank like that
Awesome video Joey, and by the way, you should go freshwater in that nice tank.
You need to make that stand and sell it… 😛 That actually is a better looking stand than what even some major aquarium stand makes sell… I'd give you 3 Thumbs Up if I had the 3rd one… but for now, 2 Thumbs Up… 😛
how do you stalk your tanks???
I just notice that for some reason I wasn't sub to you. I've notice this has happen to me with other members before don't know why anyway I'm back sub to you.
Nice stand bailsman very neat looking.
joey is the Norm Abram of aquarium stands
yay leaning twords saltwater. I love it and it looks amazing so far. can't wait to see what else you do to it.
That drop off is just begging for coral. You could have a really cool, realistic reef drop off with that.
So, I did some research about this tank. The salt water versions just don't look as visually stimulating as the freshwater because of the lack of plants, in my opinion.
