    Hi all, It is waterproofed with a pond sealer and yes I heated and curved the perspex myself. That was a mission but next time will be a tonne easier. I have a vacuum for press that i ended up using to heat the perspex until it was pliable, then i shaped to suit. I don't have fish in it atm as i tried to aquascape it (unsuccessfully) and have just removed all of the crap in it to go back to a simple setup. I will however probably screw a piece of driftwood with an Anubis on it to the side for a little flare. I have a number of guppies (which have just had around 25 fry) which i will most likely put in there. I also used some devils ivy for a little aquaponic setup to help with maintenance which is running from one of these. I also have one of these air bubble filters Some more images from the build............
  3. Hi Guys, I am new to the hobby and the site. I started to get interested in aquariums recently and being somewhat 'handy', I decided to have a crack at a unique aquarium build. I ended up building an aquarium from a full size wine barrel and putting a perspex porthole in the front for viewing. I'd love to get some feedback from you guys on your thoughts and potential issues going forward just please keep in mind that I am a builder/cabinet maker/creator and not a seasoned aquarium enthusiast. I just had an idea and wanted to get into the hobby. I wouldn't mind making a few of these for people either, if there was some interest. Thanks in advance.
