Joey i found a video of yours from 8 years ago……..
You look a lot skinny back then…….😁😁
5 gram of food for 1 liter of k1 media and you add 70 liter of k1 media to that sump tank are you going to feed 350 gram of food each day ?
To many adverts
If I have a 20 Gal long (Thank You Petco $1 per gal.sale, couldn't a 10 gal tank for a Sump ? or should I just use an Aqua Clear filter
where do you buy the pipes?
What gallon of tank is the filter
its very noisy
joey are you able to use acrylic in a glass tank?
Are you going to do a saltwater tank again? I was interested to see more on that aswell
Great videos! Does this filter works with salt water?
Where do you get your k1 kaldnes? How much
What is the size of the tank you're using as the sump?
@The King of DIY™ (Aquariums) is it possible to put a piece or acyrlic, or glass above the k-1 about 1 inch below the water surface where the k-1 is. To reduce the sound of the k-1 banging together. Kind of like a trickle plate like thing with a bunch of whole drilled in it. With maybe some lava rock to hold it down or something. If so should it be above the pvc bringing the the water in. or above. Any help KING.
Ps would this be a good way to go with discus?
Where do you shop joey?
Rule of thumb for air pumps?
I think this tank is same as mine 4ft wide by 1 ft deep can I support a 300 gallon tank with this?. Thanks oh and your swaggered out today boss!.
hey whats up I am starting a 75 gallon reef ready tanks what inline pump will you recommend .
Hey Joey! Great series. Do you have step by step instructions on how to make this fluidized bed filter? Would love to get ahold of them if you do.

I also wanted to find out more about the air pump housing that you mention. I have searched your videos and couldn't find anything to that effect. This would be a great tutorial as I have a loud airpump I would like to silence.
I can't seem to find those rigid style bubble wands anywhere. Would you be able to provide me with the store you purchase those from?
is it possible to turn the larger chamber into a refugium?
Again great and creative tips ! I can't wait to start my own tank(s). One question if i can? If you are using live plants in your setup, will the overflowpipe be able to suck out the debris? Thanks again for the inspiration & education man !
is it an issue if i use too much air in my K1 system?
i know this is an old post but can you give me any info on what thickness of glass is needed for x amount of water volume? is there an equasion for it?
HI Joey, will the K1 work on tropical fish, Malawi's in particular.
Love your videos great insight and ideas.
are you in a relationship cause your absolutely handsome!
Hey Joey, how big it's need to be the filter aquarium? A ratio Aquarium- Filter?
How do you know how big of an overflow tank thing you need?
