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.

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.

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. 👍

Author Rachael Land ( ago)
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!

Author Chet 21 ( ago)
You should do a saltwater tank😀

Author Ryan Blackburn ( ago)
I don't usually comment on these, but Joey, you need to know that your electrical is not to code.

Author Joey Cook ( ago)
Can't wait to see all the builds and when fish house is done. But I was thinking about building a acrylic aquarium and was wondering how you know what thickness to use. I noticed you have used 1/2 inch and 3/4. Thanks

Author LilMiss Mystery ( ago)

Can i give you a suggestion? make a large water-box with small fish, that you can control nutrition and water quality. then use the tiny fish to feed the predators! big carnivore fish get so happy when they can hunt a little!

Hi Joey,

I have a problem and need help. All of a sudden my well water has high nitrates and therefore my tanks have high nitrates. Any idea what I should do? RO/DI then add buffers? Seachem denitrate? Biopelllet reactor? Fluidized bed? Any recommendations would be appreciated.
Thank you

You should put some ripsaw catfish into the large tank

Author Melvin Scottborgh ( ago)
Good luck with everything. Can't wait to see the out come. Sounds like its going be great!

Author Mitch Castellano ( ago)
Hey joey, HVAC tech here and thought i should chime in. Noticed you plan
on heating the structure with an air source heat pump. Now i do know
you said that the heat pump can run up to -30c, but from my experience
most of them will only operate to between -15c and -25c (-25 being the
coldest operating one i have ever seen before shutting down for cold
weather protection). The other major issue with a heat pump as primary
heating source is that the heat output it directly dependent on the
exterior temperature. The colder it is outside, the lower btu output of
the heat pump. The capacity of the heat pump at lets say -20c will be
60-75% lower than what the heat pump is generally rated for. Especially
if you plan on using the HRV/ERV to ventilate the structure in the winter,
then this will also add extra heating load as well. Hopefully you plan
on getting some sort of backup or auxiliary heating system installed
with the heat pump. One option that you could possibly do is a separate
infloor heating zone for the rest of the building where the big tank
isnt, or a heatpump that has backup electric heating built in. You could
also look into a through wall self contained electric heat cool unit.
Hope this helps and you planned around this since your going with a heat
pump. Id hate to see you spend all that money for something that is not
adequate for your needs. Goodluck with the build!

What if the heating under the cement for the large tank is faulty and overheats the tank! Can that happen and hurt the fish inside??

Author Reefmom ( ago)
great video Joey. You're doing a great job.

Author Muhammed Saber ( ago)
Man, I see you're really happy and so excited about your new fish house, That pushed me to finally comment on your work.

it's really nice job what you're doing and I watched most of your videos from the start and man you made me fall in love with such an adorable hobby.

Author 3D Editor ( ago)
What do you do for work to be able to afford all that?

Author Tyler Stephens ( ago)
You are an inspiration to me! I'm truly excited to come along with you on your journey with you new fish house. I can't wait to see what is to come! I fell into a rut where I lost interest with my tank. I got bored with it and couldn't figure out how to get inspired. You are the one who reignited my passion to the hobby. Thank you so much!

Author graham easton ( ago)
I enjoyed this but I would recommend that when you put the underfloor heating you put in back up thermostat s I used sell this product and that is a must

Author Dandi Diputra ( ago)
I'm living in tropical climate and love to having lots of windows. Why its only have only two? Just wondering a good explaination

Author Javier Duenas ( ago)
Wow... Your aquarium gallery idea is REALLY cool! You must be the King of Time Management too though. I can't imagine how hard it must be to keep up ONE video a week, not to mention TWO... and soon THREE?!? I guess your loss (of sanity) is our gain! Thank you!

Author David P ( ago)
why not level up to salt water and set up some frag tanks to learn about Corals!

Author eva2k0 ( ago)
Nothing better than watching someone fulfill their dreams! Congrats Joey!

hi The king of diy i love your videos but if you have a tank with cichlids then put in a red top zebra

Author Emanuel Davidson ( ago)
hi Joey I started watching your vids bout a week ago I'm 15and am just starting to really get in the hobby u know to keep .e out of trouble and I'm really enjoying it and your vids just make it even better the is so much but if you ever have a spare tank I could use one but honestly thanks for your vids they truly inspire me

Author Sethdarkus ( ago)
How big of a fluidized filter do you need for that 10,000+ gallons? taking a educated guess based on galley room size and how much space per section of wall per 100gal tank and assuming you may have a center of the room.

Author lizzyanthus1 ( ago)
So excited to see the new fish building!  I can see you are a little bit excited too.  LOL.  The plan sounds great and I am really looking forward to following the progression of it's creation.  Thanks for the update!

Author John J ( ago)
Hey wonderful video! Super excited about this build. Quick question I have is your thoughts on which platform or website you will be setting your live streams on. I think that is a wonderful idea, and if you are undecided, may I recommend They have a creative section and would be able to net more income from subscriptions and such. (even if money isnt the main focus). Looking forward to watching this ambient background live in the future!

Author Agnar Áskelsson ( ago)
The door to your pump room is in the wrong location. It cuts the wall in two and there for eliminates your possibility to place a proper tank up to it. You know that one day you are gonna need more wall space hehe :)

Author pastieboy ( ago)
Hi Joey, just a quick note to say thank you for the inspiration you gave when I started out in the hobby, at the time I was over ambitious with what I could afford so what did I do to save money?... Followed the King Of DIY and got the tank started on a budget, over time replacing with more long term items. Just purchased one of your T-shirts to show a bit of support and gratitude for your dedication. Looking forward to seeing the end result of the Aquarium Gallery and hope one day to be able to convince the wife to allow my own private building for the sole purpose of fish lol.
