The king of DIY
I'm an Industrial Electrician that has built thousands of cooling systems and when you cool down an MRI machine you can stack these fans 2-5 or more depending on the heat. Just make sure your power supply can handle the amperage of the fans combined including the start-up amps.
How am i Supposed to put the fan on a Lid…?
The fan facing Directly into the tank or the other way(Inward or Outward)
15 Gallon tank,Need Help please!
how to build a sump for a 150 gallpn aquarium
could you use a few 9v batteries
Can you also discuss RO. And is also poss to have a DIY RO?
Can you make a video on refugiums for both saltwater and freshwater
Do i need to use an electric fan for proper ventilation or will cutting a hole and fitting it with a vent work.
Joey, does you Arrowana like just a plain setup or are you going to do vegetation down the line. I know you said you would but have you started?
Man, that fish looks soooo sweet in that black box with the blue LED lights.
Once again, thanks Joey!! ^_^
Are you going to have a reef acuarium and make DIY videos? 🙂
What editing software do you use to make your videos?
hey Joey how's it going? i just uploaded a video and gave you a little shout out. my video is all about the things you showed how to make. and i want to personally thank you for being awesome so thanks man!
heheh its ''blowing'' not ''pumping'', lol Joey you are so used to saying pumping in your vidoes .. lol cool video though, I'm definitely doing this for my axolotls tank
I did this with an entertainment center and put it on a remote controlled outlet, so that I could turn it on when all of the electronics are on to keep cool air flowing through, super easy to do and wonderful for keeping things dry and cool.
Already using this idea on my turtle tub
solder & Marine grade shrink tube
I put some black plastic craft mesh I got from Michaels between the fan and the stand to camoflage the fan
I'm just wondering, and if possible, I'd like to do, but, I recently ordered a canister ( mong other fish equipments) from another country (UK) and when it came in, I was definitely not expecting it to have a different electrical plug. I am from the US. This was my first time ordering a canister online, let alone from another country. so my question is, is it possible to re-wire the UK electrical plug to a us standard electrical plug? Any risks? Any advice would be good. It'd be such a waste to order these equipments and never be able to use them because of the difference in electrical plugs.
cool idea! are you going to be adding any other fish to that tank?
have been using these since long, i get them for 2$ in my country… lol.. also they look sleek… since its 30C+ to 39C almost 10mnths in my city, i dont use covers for my tank and onky keep non jumpers..
hi… i got a reef tank with a sump. i have this fan setup on the sump. but the it pumps sea smell to the room. what can i do to remove the bad smell
I have about 6 of these 120mm fans and they are all tied into my lighting system. That way when my lights are on the fans are on and when they're off they are all off. Ideally though I would like my fans to stay on maybe 1 hour after my lights turn off but I will get around to that once I purchase another timer
I want to install a 3D back round but what if I do not like it how would I remove the silicon from the glass without it scratching up
can we use multiple fans ie 4 fans and run on single 12v adepter? will it be helpful to cool down the tank if placed on top of the tank? if yes the how many *c will drop?
thanks for the idea….
i have 2 5 inch in my hood one bringing in air one pushing out
A on and off switch??
old computer guy here and aquarium hobbist .. i'd suggest a water resistant screen between the fan and outside if you have pets or kids to keep paws, noses and fingers out of the blades.
Great idea, never thought of using a fan from a computer on a timer. I always used one of this cheap clip on fans from Bed Bath & Beyond.
What is the meaning of DIY ????
Fired Up!!! Idea. Been notice condensation build up in my canopy on my 55 gallon. My question is do you run the fans for 24 hrs or plug them in with light timer or its on timer?
I'm an electrician engineer in year 3 at my college and this project it's totally safe. Just don't short- circuit the wires ( don't touch them together ) .
Would we need one adapter per fan or could we fit the intake and outtake fans to the same adaptor?
I live in an apartment on the top floor and during the summer it get really hot in my house so I made a little system for my canope with 2 fans pointing towards the water surface at an angle to agitate the surface and promote evaporation, one fan sucking the moist air from underneath the canope and blow it out. I have tested it and it works really well, after a little while my water temperature has gone down 5 degrees Celsius below the room temperature. I made it with small fans I took out of my Xbox intercooler.
awesome video bro!
also joey if your GFCI has a usb port (as most do now) you can save a plug-in. still using a usb from an old phone charger
Neat, easy project Joey. I like it.
Great work dude
anyway, been wanting to say this, you look like eminem but with more body mass. lol. youre the best.
Is it possible that you some time in the future will be able to sell your book to the eu? because id really like to buy one of your books but living in denmark that isn't possible atm. Video was nice as always, keep it up!
drip loops on all cables is a must
great idea dude.
This is a project we often overlook doing!
Did you know I wrote a book?
Or that I am also on facebook?
