You surely changed over 6 years…
Hi where did you get the plumbing fittings?
the airstones front corners dont look very natural or attractive
joej how about some co2 in that tank???
that is Sweet!
Do the power on for 24 hours?! Why do not have any sponge and wool in the filter?! Just bacteria is enough?! ;-]
Where is a go place to get the k1 thinking of trying to make my own tank
Awesome video…you think this would work for turtles??? I think it will!
Joey, since you have a lot of surface agitation in the k1 media chamber and gases are being exchanged there, is it still necessary to have an air stone or can I get away without it in the main aquarium?
Dude I've been searching for vids like this for ages I don't think I'll need to ever watch another persons vids again, u cover so much and explain every question I ever had , especially about sumps. I've a 6ft tank on the way and it'll be my first time using a sump. It's arriving in the morning and for the first time I'm not nervous, a huge thank you.
nice job….if i was to do something like that what do you think it wood coast ..i know Acrylic is not chap..if you can give me and est
hey iam bout to get started setting up a 460 gallon tank and i could use some advice about the filtration set up i was thinking bout either a wet dry trickle filter or the berlin filtration sump but i like the fluidized bed that you have any suggestions?
Thank you for this video, i learn a lot of this.
joey can you make me a tank like 250 gallons please i would be ever so grate full please
you should do turtles
Bravo man, great job! Its beautiful 🙂
How many liters is the Aquarium?
fuck you are smart. You really know you aquariums. Is it possible to get an email so I can ask you a bunch of questions??
Hi I never have a problem with noise I figured out it was vibration do you know any way to fix it cause it I place my hand or a towel on a side of my tank it stops but when removed it is vibrating agian is this a bad thing and is there a way to stop it.
what do u use to treat ur water for ur big tanks. do u use any ro water
what do u use for a stress coat in your big tanks? or do u just use ro water or do u use hafe ro and hafe tape water
from beginning to end how much did everything cost you not including tools like saw and drill ext to the point where there is water in it??
Have you done any videos on cycling a new fish tank, if not, will you do this topic in the future? 🙂
Will you use a protein skimmer if you don't use live plants ?
How far down in the sump are the air flow tubes ?
another wunder tip i have leeched :D, putting air stone at the front corner, god knows hy i didnt think of that my self, i dislike the air bubble stream, but its very usefull, thanks again joey.
@uarujoey sweet …. keep up the vids ur awesome
great tank great work but i have a question . if u turn off the main pump whats happens to the water traveling back to the sump ? since youre sump is filled to the top ?
how much did it cost to make that tank????
@uarujoey no bro there are two different types and yes one is for saltwater but they also have a freshwater line as well. the type I was asking about is freshwater and I plan on using at least two different types that they make only it is black in color. One is for the "bacteria" for the setup of the tank and the other is for the plants I plan to put in there.
@uarujoey hehehehehe yeah sorry about that. okay thank you very much for the information and I'll check into that. I can't wait until I can get started on this project. So i'll be standing by for your next installment because I can't wait to see the fish you got in their new aquarium. BTW, have you ever considered using CaribSea Instant Aquarium Moonlight Sand Gravel as a substrate? It's white and supposed to have beneficial bacteria to help in setting up a brand new aquarium.
@uarujoey no really thank you for the great deal of information that you deal out on this channel.I have gotten a lot of great ideas from you and I plan to incorporate them although slightly modified in my dream tank. I do have one question and that is where did you get the flanges you used? I went to my neighborhood home Depot and I couldn't find anything even close.
@uarujoey just gotta wait til cities remove them i guess…
@uarujoey i have a question that ive been looking for a good answer for a long time. do you know how to get an asian arowana into the USA legally at all? i really want a super red ..
I have had several smaller aquariums in my time and have run them pretty successfully. I am not bragging but simply stating a fact. As such I am always trying to find new techniques and new advise and you are by far the source I have found. Plus you have some other subscribers who have some great ideas as well. What can I say I love my subscription!!! one quick question, Can the plumbing system you used work with a plywood aquarium? or would it change the building process completely?
Looks great brother,… can't wait for the next video. BTW do you have any saltwater setups, or are you strictly a fresh water enthusiast? Don't get me wrong i love fresh water, but i find that i get more of a challenge with saltwater. I don't currently have any videos, but when i do i'll definitly let you know. Thanks for everything bro.
Joey! Im definetly going to be following your series when i build my tank when i get back from deployment, but its gonna be a larger, acrylic, saltwater fluval edge lookin thing. That looks like an awesome mbuna biotope, actually it looks awesome period. Are you keeping us in suspense of what fish your gonna get or did you just forget to tell us? 8p
@uarujoey your tank is absolutely great for bichirs!
i love you
looks good btw you should apply for partnership
Great video! Thanks for putting all the work to videos! I'm sure it was a Lot of time.
I dont think those LED lights will work with plants. I think you will need to buy those LED that are used for corals, very expensive. Alternately you can make your own LED lights. I would like to see you try that. it would be a great tutorial!
give me all the money in the world i will still buy only discus fish ….i love them /.///
Do you have a video for building a stand? I've tried looking and can't see if you have. Great videos, really good and easy to follow.
Great videos and even greater tank dude…Keep it up
Wow looks great joey! That K1 media will make easy work of the ammonias and nitrites! If your doing a sand substrate you could try an amazon sword plant as they grow huge and are good space fillers…they're not too demaning on light levels too 🙂 java fern will look great in there also 🙂 keep it up mate!
It looks well good when is the next vid coming out
