  1. Hey ! The king of diy. I do appreciate your work. Pleaaaaaase!!! Could it be possible for you to make a video on "how to make a video on YouTube with your software". I saw a little part from " the king of diy in the news"…

  2. im prepping for a 75 gal aquarium i bought on a real good holiday sale. i cant set it up for a while so i have a lot of time to prep. been watching your vids a lot lately thanks theyre awesome. one question.. I dont have a complete grasp as far as water chemistry and the whats and whys of filtration. im curious if your book goes deeper into that and explains those types of things. for example what nitrates are what they do to the tank, when a sump is necessary, how it works, why it works, plumbing details, ect.

  3. Hi joey,

    I don't know if you can help me out. I have a small cold water fish with 4 fancy goldfish in there. Eheim 60 pick up filter.

    3 or 4 days after 100% water change the water always appears like it's got partials in there.

    Any ideas on how I can stop this from happening?

  4. hie joey…. didn't know how to contact you… but i need serious help on some feeding stuffs.. Can you please show us how to make a sinking pellet food feeder for fishes…. some of my fishes can't find their foods because its lost under gravels….. and not having gravels would be pretty creepy and dirty… so if you could show us something to make like a feeding thing to make the fish easily find their food… i think you knew what i mean… it would be a great help …..

  5. my gf bought your book about 3wks ago for me and just paid for it how do i get online to get the copy she paid for? i love your videos and i would love to start building my own tanks once i have a house

  6. Merry Christmas and have a wonderful New Years! I think the information you provide is extremely interesting and allows people to have that haha moment of "I can do that!"… I've had a passion for tropical fish since I was a small child with great results caring for them. The largest aquarium I've had was 55 gallons – store bought of course. I need to ask have you ever build a round or hexagon aquarium before. Additionally, out of curiosity how large based on your methods can be use to build can a fiberglass tank. What size would it be if you had a $500 budget (round or hexagon tank)? Thinking about aguaponics on my property sizing up the round tanks, which is the recommended shape. Researching the different shapes, materials and cost – so far tote are winning, but this don't help me to educate K-12 grade kids once the Aquaponic Garden is fully functional. Any advise in this area is greatly appreciated.

  7. Just wanted to say Merry Christmas [or Happy Holidays] and Happy New Year to you and yours! Looking forward to another interesting and informative year! Thank you for all you do, you're the indispensable DIY guy!!

  8. hey joey excellent channel! Ive been watching you for a while now and i was finally able to follow one of your many diy horizontal canister filter which was awesome! Im upgrading to a 125 gallon from 55 gallon and id like to know if you can make a video about cover holes drilled on a fish tank. this tank is a 125 gallon acrylic truvu fish tank. i looked on youtube but found nothing, i found stuff on the internet but im more of a visual person. so yea can you help out? how can you cover holes drilled on a acrylic tank? this will be a freshwater fishtank so no need for the holes… they are about 2 inch holes so yea thx man;)

  9. Merry Christmas, Joey! This has been your best year yet!

    In the New Year would it be possible for you to cover how you care for your fish. You have me hooked on Arowana. I'm considering a Silver or Jardini!

  10. I've been wanting to build an acrylic tank now for awhile after watching some of those tank builds. I like how clean they look because they dont need the black trim on top/bottom. I just got a snakeskin gourami last night for my daughter's aquarium I set up for her. Looking to get the glofish out of it and in a smaller tank soon so I can put some better looking fish in the big tank. She's only 2 so she had to have those once she saw them lol.

  11. I would just like to say thanks for all you do. You have helped me through many hard times in the hobby. Your videos are always entertaining and helpful. You inspire all ages, from adults to children, i know this because both me and my dad watch your videos, and i am 13. keep up the good work.


    P.S. I also love your book.
