This looks like a sweet coffee table! If I had any DIY abilities I might build it.

Awesome, I've always wanted one of those..

I would really love to build an aquarium out of a bathroom sink but I'm definitely not a builder lol

Lol, I don't have the money for that build. He used a lot of acrylic in that build, and not to mention the tools he used as well to make it all look awesome. Definitely a great tank, but probably a bit pricey to build, lol.

I will be building one of these shortly I've made one before and its SO SIMPLE!

Because its only 20-30cm ish deep it won't hold that much water so the glass can be 5-6mm which is cheap!

When i made my last one i made it with 6mm glass with a 10mm top to be safe

Quickie...

silicon the 4 sides to the bottom so u have a sq bowl..

then put a very thin bead of silicon around the top rim…

wait for it all to set and BOOM! put the lid on then all u have to do is make the base which can be done several ways..

if you want to install a pump you will need to drill a tiny hole at the top edge of one of the sides for the wire and u can hide the wire by wrapping each corner with black tape OR if its for gold fish (advised) just put in a live plant or C02 Canister plant (awesome!)

I've not got any pics on my laptop of my one but as i said il be making a new one soon so il post pics and step by step instructions on how i did it :)

DIY really isn't that hard it just takes patients to start with then in no time you will be building an aquarium for each room in the house!

PEACE! :silly:

I have seen similar table aquariums like this before and they are very unique. However, like most aquariums they make a noise, you could hear it distinctly in the video. I can tell you now that the one thing I do not miss about my large aquarium is the noise that it produced. I think that maybe this is the sort of thing you could have in your man cave, rather than the living room where the whole family congregate.

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)
