  1. Joey you are a true inspiration to the hobby, the more videos I watch the more passionate and inspired I become. Keep on doing what you do.

  2. I never understood spouses need to poopoo on our passions and hobbies.. maybe from a financial standpoint but we should be responsible about this anyway. I think its jealousy in many cases that they haven't found such a purpose in life.

  3. I have a 40 gallon tank filled with guppies….They keep breeding, and I want to put a goldfish in with them, but I don't think I should. I'm already researching, but I don't know how the goldfish with act with the guppies.

  4. you are absolutely adorable and incredibly impressive! When you got that look on your face and said "i hope I'm making the right decision", I just blurted out an "aawwwww".
    You are always doing the right thing if you are following your dreams <3

  5. Are you going to fund your hobby with any breeding in your new fish house? Seems like a very high cost just to maintain a building for fish tanks with no extra income to fund all the resources it will require. Maybe some breeding, youtube income, and a book or two could offset some of those costs to keep bringing this terrific content.

  6. I know you probably all ready have your mind made up about what fish you are going to keep. But have you ever considered keeping a massive freshwater puffer like maybe a mbu?

  7. Just watched one of Jenny's videos about her getting discus and that you inspired her with her videos! So when is the Solid Gold DIY meet up going down Joey? Two of my favs!

  8. You are an absolute legend!! I only wish you lived in my country (Wales, UK) so that I could pop round and give you a hand (for naff all btw) so that I could learn from the legend himself who inspires so many across the world. You would never get someone that is so hands on and willing to learn haha! For someone that has been in construction since I was 15 years of age (now 28) you are the most inspirational and using it for something that is so educational and cool, plus it touches my heart strings to see how excited you get its unbelievable!! It would be an honour to learn from you and see all this go on first hand. Unfortunately for someone like me that would never happen. BUT!! I am extremely excited for what is about to come and you have my support every step of the way. And I also agree with what people have said about opening a trust for you to help you with your dream that you are using to inspire so many as apposed to paying off your family home. I would gladly give in a few quid!! Respect to you and your family. An amazing man. Thank you.

  9. Hey Joey,
    You know what I think would be a challenge, but would be AWESOME?!!
    You were talking about having walls of all the different areas of the world, you should make it where when all the tanks are put together, they represent and look like the continent. 😎😎😎
    One possible way, You could put a giant decal the wall, then have cutouts in the shapes needed for like the corners and such to blend in the the background.
    I don't know if that's poss. Hell I could be talking out of my ass. LOL. But I thought what better way to display them since your are doing regional tanks.
    Just got into the hobby about 4 months ago and have spent 10 grand already. Can't even fathom what the costs of your project is going to be. I'm excited like its mine. 👍

  10. I go through stages of watching your channel… for a week or so I'll watch all your diy vids come up with some great idea and never build a tank…then ill forget all about wanting to build a tank and 6 months go by and I'm binge watching your videos again…why couldn't I have found your fish building vids once it was done😢😂! I'm so excited to see your next update!
