    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 finnish. everything needed to know. From 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
    Designing building and installing filtration.

    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.....
    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.

    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 if you can!

    Thanks for looking.

    Nice! Thanks for the support. One of my favorite videos is the arowana operation i did. Looking back, i could have made a better video, but i was really nervous. Still not a bad video. Shows you how to put a fish to sleep to operate... I had to cut his tail off in that video. I did some updates on that fish as well.

    I will be adding a lot of videos over the next few months. You can expect to see 30 or videos added over the rest of 2011.

    I watched a bunch of your videos after finishing the first three in the acrylic series and im very impressed with all of them. Good stuff man.

    I might have missed it(babysitting niece and she demands attention sometimes lol), but have you already mentioned the price of all of the acrylic? Do you know off hand if EMP has any distribution centers in the US?

    Thanks for doing these videos. I cant wait to see the rest.

    Thanks for watching my other videos as well. Glad you enjoyed them.

    I did mentioned the price of the acrylic in the first video. For 12mm cell cast, you can expect to pay around $11-12 a sq/ft with EM plastic. They do not have anything in the states right now.


    No problem! More are on their way.

    Any idea of how much of a "gap" that Weld On 4 can handle?

    Weld-on 4 is meant for two surfaces that will be in contact with each other. It is water thin, as you can see in one of those videos, so i cannot fill a gap. BUT weld-on 16 can.
