Please Dont.... -_-

Ok so I just got done watching a




"How to make an aquarium" video
(link here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j-AmdP9a7b0)


And I feel sick now...
He didn't know anything about aquariums or fish apparently and oh-my-God
I could barely watch it, sorry im greifing so much but the point here is...
Please do your research people before you decide to get a dog, cat, fish, any pet!
Because for most people, they don't know anything about animals so just PLEASE DO RESEARCH before you get a pet, or else they will in some way suffer.
I prob didn't say everything I wanted to say but... this video lol if you have a moment look at the hate comments on it

Obviously this guy is a rank beginner, and has no idea what he's doing. I wouldn't expect this to measure up to some of the fantastic systems we see here all the time, but it at least could have been something reasonable, with fish that would have worked out in a tank that size and a half decent filtration system.

The major flaw is that someone else might try to copy this.

I love the DIY air pump he made out of an electric motor and a little sheet of rubber. The aquarium is nice with the curved sides allowing for the light to be suspended over the water. His plastic plants will not have to be trimmed. I wonder what his DIY for a filter is. It's sad about the fish.

Drip acclimation? How about dump acclimation?
Sad thing is he's probably super proud of himself....
At least he didn't fill the tanks with male bettas..... Wait that was another YouTube video. Lol

I don't see the problem, Other than the poor workmanship making the tank and dumping the fish straight in.

I actually built my 2 foot tank at home.

No cycle, no filter, no acclimation, poor stocking, light is a fire hazard, fish that don't go together....
