Favorite youtube channels?


What are your favorite aquarium-related youtube channels? I have a favorite for koi, but would love recommendations and to hear your favorites! They can be about anything, freshwater, saltwater, aquascaping, algae, etc.

"Pondguru" and "ThePondDigger" for ponds and "Dustin's fish tank" "DefiniteAquascapeTV" and "The king of DIY" for anything aquarium related.

ADU, aquarium design Utah, probably the best channel I have seen when it comes to straight facts and science of the planted aquarium.

I like dustin too because he is fun, but not for nothing, I feel like eventually you reach a point in the hobby where you already know everything dustin is going to say, at least in his public vids, since he is really more geared towards getting people into the hobby and lower-tech stuff.

The green machine is definitely cool for showing step by step creation of aquaecapes, and going into why everything is being done as its being done. Amano's channel is okay for looking at pretty things but I feel like if I want to see an amano tank I can just google it and save myself the time.

I'm also subscribed to The Green Machine and Amonos channel but their videos are few and far between and when they do put out a video, it's usually on a high light co2 tank.

Great thread. Just watched ADU's video on mixing up your own Excel...saving $$$ always makes me happy. More money for more plants!

One of my favorites is Joey's YouTube channel "The King of DIY". IMO He's got some real great videos on homemade Do-It-Yourself aquarium filters, fish food, lighting, and nice presentations. Great way to save $$$ doing DIY. Dustin's fish tanks got a good channel too with a ton of helpful videos talking about fish, plants, aquariums, and etc.

I always enjoy Mrmomtanks channel but he quit making videos about 4 months ago for whatever reason.

And I don't watch for the fish facts but more for the way he talks is hilarious.

The plants are all "wick" and growing "violently."

He has a buddy that has good videos also jfleshtanks...but his vocabulary isn't quite as colorful as "mrmomtanks" but does have some nice plants.

Here's to hoping Mrmomtanks is okay and puts a video out sometime soon.

Another I got started with besides Dustin's is Jacobs Aquarium.

I watch this one guy a lot named "Damon Charles". That's his username, was well. He has a couple tanks setup planted. His voice is interesting. I like listening to it. He has a 45 setup really nice.

I subscribe to a lot of channels:

Hmoob Thor - a few DIYs and unboxing, pretty interesting to watch.
Mrmomtanks - plenty of DIYs and starters.
Cloud9aquariums - plenty of DIYs and FYIs.
LupDiesel - information on shrimps and such if you're interested in these things.
AquaStudent - I view this for ideas.
Planted Tank UK - DIYs, ideas, and information on plants.
TheRick2325 - information / adventures (this is awesome), and introducing guests from Youtube that deals with fish tanks field
Dustin's Fish Tanks - your dirted planted guy, info on a lot of plants
Solid Gold - if you're into goldfish, this is your channel, otherwise, if you're like me and want a good book read, she does book reviews.
Rob Bob - this channel has NOTHING TO DO WITH AQUARIUMS, however, if you're looking for inspiration and 'feed' like worms, etc, I highly recommend him. All natural worms to feed your fish ideas? YES!
Paul's Planted Aquariums - a lot of plants! You can get your ideas here.

Hope this helps!

My personal pond favorite are the videos that Caesar Yanez posted. The videos he uploaded with Andy Moo talking about "How to Grow Big Koi" are EXCELLENT, and some of my all time favorites. Even if you don't keep Koi, it's a still a very educational video.
