Today’s video is a must have for any aquarist. Unfortunately, not many people do it in the first place, so hopefully this will provide another option.

Wouldn't having holes in a aclimation tank be a bad thing? Might as well throw them strait into the tank at that rate, cause thats exactly what you just did
Wait so you literally let the sponge float in your main tank to cycle it, that’s all?
I'm 1.1 k liker 🙂
I know that it is more difficult because it is clear but can I use a 5 Gallon bucket?
Just in curiosity I have a bunch of 5 gallon buckets that I got for around $1-5 I was wondering if I could use them for a temporary quarantine/acclimation tank?
Joey what would I even do without your wisdom
When you are done you put everything inside and close the lid (at 2:47) but tell the folks NOT
to put the sponge filter in it and let it dry. Keep that filter in a canister filter or sump.
Joey….question…. Nitrogen cycle and this… it's temporary for the fish for quarantine so it's not important?
This is my project as well
thank you for the show of the floating nursery
idk if you reply or not any ideas on moving a nursey tank with young fry in it
Will the floating time out area work with saltwater? Or will the noodles pollute the water.
One of my guppy got gang up with other guppies… I need to do that
Should I add tank water or tap water?
Hey Joey, can you do a video on breeding feeder fish? Thanks brotha!
Wouldn't the plastic and chemicals of the pool noodles harm the fish?
Thank you sir
good idea i had one very similar for my harlequin shrimp.
Wow Joey, that was most excellent!! The floating "spare tank" is an AWESOME idea!! No extras, heaters or filters needed, what a perfect solution to a pesky problem.
Thanks for sharing!! Good luck with your book, as well. Take good care :0)~
I've been using this method for a long time. It's very affective.
Do you put momma in with the fry ?
So simply and so cheap! This is genius! My wife won't give me a hard time anymore; cheap portable and storeable hospital tank; freaking genius!
Hey Joey, would you please make a video showing how to build a stand for bow front and cynlindrical aquariums. I have a project in the future to build a bow front corner tank and don't know how to build stand for that type of aquarium.
Love that floating nursery great idea
Those are great ideas! Thanks for saving me money on a Quarantine tank!
Great info Joey! Always look forward to your videos! Thanks man keep it up!
Joey you're smart. I don't know why you don't work for NASA, Great engineering ideas. Now I can dirt my tank with Master D (Dustin's fish tank)
Great video! Like the new film set.
My problem is the quarantine always becomes another tank. .lol
Love it Joey ! !

Make sure you wash all new surfaces to remove "mold release agents" used in fabrication. Including the noodle.
It's best to have these well in advance. If there is a strong "plastic odor" then the plastic is not completely cured…. When plastic is fabricated a "vehicle" is used to make the plastic flow into the mold easily. Frequently alcohol. After it comes out of the mold the "vehicle" takes a while to evaporate. Let the plastic cure to avoid the "vehicle" leaching into your fish's water. 🙂
Great vid joey!
Can I just use a 5 gallon bucket (Since I use your DIY waterchanger now) and pop on a low power filter with some cycled media if I want to quarantine some snails?
Can you make a video on how to care for a catfish
Great video, would never have thought to do this 👍👍👍
I love your intro music 😀
Hey Joey, so I just got another turtle, and he's only a hatchling, I put him in the tank with my almost adult yellow belly slider, he's about 4 or 5 inches, and he started to eat the baby turtles shell! What should I do? (I have the baby in a 5 gallon bucket for now.
Both are great projects and necessary in the hobby. Good one.
Have to say I'm guilty on this one, but I have everything in my aquarium supplies stash. By the way, show us your stash.
Hey Joey, Whats in the tank that the Arowana was in?
Great video 👍
Simple and cheap! I like your water bottle filter for my little quarantine tank too. I just throw some bio balls in there from my sump with some filter floss.
