Great to see Joey relaxed and natural, much calmer than his later vids , nice 👍.
Go JOEY!!♡♡ you have grown so much so proud!
Watching this video in 2020; I never got a chance to watch
Can I use acrylic paint for base after forming?
Any chance the coloring on the cheap plants might leach into the water and harm the fish?
Wow you have changed alot! You should make a remake!
Joey please do a remake on this, there are so many people in the hobby that need to know this!
Silk or plastic?
This is amazing!!!
Any one watching in 2019
Any 1 watching in 2019?
What about drilling a few small holes into an old clay brick or a flower pot and securing them with a little silicone? No pH issues and the pots double as fish condos 🙂
You're so handsome!
Hey Joey, I know this is an old video but can we have a remake??
I have an idea can you do a diy carpet for the tanks
Look at you 🙂
or just grow real plants ?
Oh my god joey has come such a long way
Would it not be better to wait a week or two, or even wait a week and then put the concrete plug into a pail of water for a week and THEN add it to the tank? Might save PH problems.
Old school Joey😎
Quickkrete is great in skateboarding and aquariuming
Use Dixie cups instead of bottles. They will leave a better looking base.
Thank You, for all the inspiration, Joey. I will try this for sure. 🙂
how many months do they take to die (plants)….
thought silk plants were toxic to fish
How can you tell if a fake plant is safe or not or are they just always safe?
i have like 100 of those fake plants laying around my house didnt even know i could use these..i brought one little pice of leaf for doller when i could buy this
I love your video's bro, I've learned so much and saved much money my next project is to build my own tank, thanks to you. keep making these vids
any update of this video
does anyone know what type of live plants you can use in a tank? im in the uk and id rather see if i can find live plants in my area than buying online
Is plastic safe with fish
I use zip ties to anchor plants to rocks. Easier than making with cement.
Where do you purchase your fish from? I want to get in to the hobby and I don't know where to look for good breeder or suppliers.
I do that! just remove the metal inside the plant with a razor!
once plastic plants are in for a while..what do you recommend for cleaning? MANY people suggest using bleach and vinegar etc.. but I dont think this is wise…Any advice? THANKS AGAIN~
THANKYOU FOR THIS ONE! Was wondering what product I needed to use for my own silk plants! YOURE AWESOME!
Vinyl is an acceptable alternative to silk or plastic. Plastics and the dyes used in some silk plants can leach toxins into your aquarium. You can use aquarium silicone and aquarium gravel to make a base. Coat the bottom of the plant in the silicone, roll it in the gravel, allow to dry, and repeat to desired effect. You could also attach the plants to driftwood, rock, or other decorations. Clear fishing line can be used to tie/sew plants in place for wrapping ornaments.
Hi i have been enjoying your videos alot, i am in the uk so cant get hold of any quickcrete, i dont suppose u know of any cerment that i could get hold of in the uk that is safe to use?
