Thumbs up NEW acrylic tank build

Hi guys, Joey here.

I just wanted to give everyone a heads up that i will be soon posting a new video series on how to build an acrylic aquarium.

Start to finish. Everything needed to know.
Including, but not limited to:
where to get the acrylic
how much you can expect to pay for the acrylic
how to cut it
how to design the aquarium
preparing the edges of the acrylic
putting the tank together
welding the tank together
finishing touches(rounding corners, and flame polishing)
plumbing the tank(overflows, drilling, ect)
Designing, building and installing filtration.
Equipment selection and instalation

Each step will show exactly how to do everything. In video format.
Using common and easy to use tools. Nothing fancy.

Once you see this series, you will know everything you need to know to build an acrylic aquarium, and will see just
how easy it really is.

Also included will be a few added bonuses for my viewers. i dont want to give them away yet.....


This video series will be posted soon. I have set the date to have the first video out, as this friday.

I will be posting all videos right here for you to see.

Anyways, just a heads up.

All videos will first be uploaded to my YouTube channel here: www.youtube.com/uarujoey

Subscribe to my channel if you can!

Thanks for looking.

BUT, i will say that all of my viewers will be getting discounts on acrylic all across canada for example.
Plus, other things you'll see in the video, will also be available to my viewers in a similar fashion.

I will be done building it by the time the first video is posted. It only takes a day to build almost any size acrylic tank. It will take me longer then that though, as making the videos at the same time will slow me down a bit.

This is not my first acrylic tank build. I have now built several.

Yes, no longer on this computer though.

I posted them originally on other forums. I dont like linking to other forums though. But if you search for joey02 on MFK, you'll find one of my acrylic tank builds.

This will be interesting just for the information regarding the things needed to make acrylic structures. I had looked into this previously, not so much for the aquariums; but, for related items and accessories like sumps and trickle filters. Looking forward to this.
